Re: Can bees make comb and honey from sugar water
If you are talking about the plastic quart jar feeders that goes into the entrance, then throw them away. they will only cause you more problems. Your stronger hives will begin to rob from you weaker hives. they won't stop with just the jar, they will continue to rob until there is nothing left. Not only your hives but your neighbors or even feral hives will be robbing your hives. They are just an invitation for robbing. I'm amazed the are still selling the junk. Guess they make a good profit off of them.
I suggest that you use some kind of enclosed top feeder, reduce your entrances down to a 3/8'x3/8' opening, allowing your guard bees to fight off intruders. I would think that you are in a dearth and that makes robbing much worse. Do a search on the home page and you can get several ideas on top feeding Good Luck!!
So much to learn, so little time!!
