    Default Feeder Frames

    Hi guys. Has anyone moved bees with frame feeders full. We have fed thousands with feeders that have a cap and ladder, but have not moved them full. I think I might like to. Any thoughts?

    If it has a cap and ladder you might get awaywith it. But Id think you would still make a mess.
    Why not wait a week or so til the feeders have bee taken down a bit first?

    Sounds like your trying to do something we avoid as much as we avoid putting a frame of foulbrood into a split. UNLESS YOU HAVE NO OTHER OPTIONS..... forget it. We fed 1000 gallons last week into feeders with caps. At 60+ degrees bees eat it in a few days if not quicker. Not feeding others until they are moved. even with the caps on. If you like pouring syrup on the ground come my way and I'll put a tank below your spout before you start pouring. At the current price of sugar every drop counts dearly.
