Re: Pail Feeder
I just installed three packages of bees on the 21st. What I am doing to feed them is I placed a second hive body on top of their home and am using two quart jars with around a dozen holes punched in the lid. Probally on the second day they started taking 3/4 of a quart daily. I am feeding 1:1 sugar syrup with honey b healthy in it and from what I hear that the addition of HBH gets them to take it down like no bodys business. I am afraid to feed them outside of the hives because I do not want to start a robbing frenzy. There were alot of bees around the house before I got bees, so there are some ferals out there some where who would love to steal my girls sweets.
Not sure if this helped, but I hope it did.
