    Re: Feeder Jar Idea

    One of the things I try to do is give them syrup when it is at 95 degrees so they can take it more easily. I usually heat it up so it is at temperature and then give it to them warm. I think they...

    Feeder Jar Idea

    I am using the Entrance feeders, and I was never able to get the lids that came with those entrance feeders to fit on my Spaghetti Jars, so I discovered a new jar to use.

    Re: BeeHive Deadout?

    I didn't see any movement. I did not look too close as I didn't want to disturb a cluster that might be hanging on.
