Re: What kind of feeder do you use?
I've tried most, I have the plastic top feeders and had lots of death. Boardmans are ok, for light feeding and seeing how much they will take. I'm sold on the frame feeders, might get a few 2 gallon ones. I started a few packages this year and they could take up almost a gallon a day, with the holes punched in gallon jugs and quart jars they are very limited in how much they can take. Only a few bees can feed at a time.
I didnt have much problem with burr comb they may build a little down the feeder shoot but I was back refilling them every 3 days. They can really draw out comb taking almost a gallon a day. Some bees are better with differnt feeders.
I'm not tense, Just terribly, terribly alert!
