Re: Making pail feeders and frame rest protectors
I installed the frame rest protectors on my very first boxes but the majority are without.
I find it's easier to clean the frame rests without them.
When you first invert your pail feeder do so away from the hive to prevent attracting robbers... there will be some leakage.
Afterwards, you'll be fine. If it becomes warm enough to change the pressure, it's warm enough that the bees can deal with a little extra syrup. I think you'll be fine.
Trying to think inside the box...
