These feeders seem to be working well overall; a larger number of bees can access the feed at the same time than in our older feeders. The feeders fit well onto of my existing polystyrene Langstroth boxes.
The only caution I have is that you need to ensure the mesh is all the way down. Also check that the edges on the side walls are not bent or broken as the bees can and do get out and subsequently can't get back and die in the reservoir as I discovered yesterday - one of the mesh inserts had an unevenly cut edge on the side wall.
