I need some opinions on the practicality of this idea.

I was thinking of taking a small aquarium pump, and building a shallow declined trough lined with screen, and slightly grooved, and pumping syrup down it. ( including a reclaim set up)
Placing this get up in the middle of the yard, and seeing what happens.
Drowning wont be an issue due to the screening. Robbing incitement shoudnt be an issue, although I know I'll be feeding every fly and wasp within 500 miles. Its August here and the flow is slowing, but not stopped.
Whaddya think?
