Everything works better if it is a good design.
ditto, there are 50 of those screen plug inserts in a bag somewhere in the barn. No I take that back there are 48 and two pails with one siliconed in each.
for $2.88 i was buying gallon pickle jars, eating a lot of pickles and they worked great. For non-pickle eaters the hive top feeders (modified miller type) work well. the plastic inserts for $10 are not that bad considering they should last a long time when only left out for feeding.
