Ok folks, I have tried most all types of feeder ou there, and I really have not been that impressed with any of them. I want something relatively inexpensive, since I have quite a few to feed. What do some of you use? Anyone use some type of bulk feeding system where 20 hives can be fed over a period of time from a common feeder. I have heard of using barrels of syrup in a yard, but I imagine the bee kill is high, and that rain can be a problem. I would like to find a way to feed 12-15 colonies for a week. I hate running back and forth every couple days to fill feeders.
