Re: Wanted hive top feeder that wont drown bees!
I have two of the Beemax hive top feeders and never see a dead bee in them. I got them in a pile of equipment I purchased from a guy who was relocated.
That being said they are expensive and I couldn't afford to put them on every hive so i made migratory tops from scrap wood and used a CNC router to make holes in them just like Cleos. Impossible to drown a bee using them, you can see how much they are taking at a glance, simple to refill and replace. Nuff said.
Raising Vermont Bees one mistake at a time.
