    Default Division board feeder problem

    Has anyone experienced problems with the length dimension of the division board feeders from Betterbee??? I bought 10 of them and they are so short they fall through the deep super. Betterbee tells me thats the way they are made. I like the feeder but how to keep them on the rests???:confused::confused:

    I haven't had one, but I've heard that exact complaint about them before.

    Smile Feeder needs a little help

    A piece of masonite or something like it can be nailed to the inside so that it thickness is flush with your frame rest may help.
    !/8" or 3/16' on both ends should work.
    Dadant sells a great feeder.

    Default Equipment suppliers should stand behind sales

    BEES4U,

    I agree I can make the feeders work and I have. My angry is that I found Betterbee knew of this problem a year ago, had the manufacturer fix it and replace all bad parts. Then Betterbee seems to be selling everything they have good or bad and not telling their customers (or in my case ex customers) of the problem.
