    I just bought 4 of the dadant wooden nuc feeders, I hope the seal were they sit on top of the nuc is better than the ones I bought from Brushy. I hope this stops my robbing probblems.

    Its my favorite feeder as well. Zero drowned bees and works well. There are several threads from the past summer on it here.

    I have a miller style and have tons of drowned bees with it, not to mention crazy comb building in the center. The jars work well too with holes in the lids but feed much slower. Even tried the scientific beekeeping jar feeders with the soldered ferrules, they also work well but feed slower than the hive top feeders. All depends on what you are trying to accomplish.

    I bought 4 of the Dadant nuc feeders this week, they are constrructed well, but I didnt know that you have to seal the seams yourself with elmers before you use them. One of the feeders was crushed on the corner do to shipping, and Dadant is making it good.

    Just get a good silicon sealer. The Elmers glue is a joke.

    Update on the Dadant wooden hive top nuc feeders. They work great, no drowned bees, no leaks, and it stopped my robbing problems. The robbers must not be able to smell the syrup like they could with the hive top feeders from brushy mnt. 5 stars from me. Steve
