    I did not rat anyone out. I have not told the powers that be that there are hives in the borough. I do not plan to either. I am not sure if they know of the existence of the hives or not.

    Re: What the best Feeder system

    Cheaper alternative to buying a hive top feeder. Use a gallon ziplock beg. Fill , squeeze out air, seal, lay in top of hive, punch holes in bag for bees to get at syrup.
