Re: Jar feeders on mating nucs
I use plastic water bottles for feeding both nucs and mating nucs. I drill a hole just big enough for the plastic cap to drop into. The plastic cap gets 3 small holes for access to the feed. The bottles are free. When I go into the yard I pull the empty bottle and replace with a full one (they get filled at home). You can also use any size bottle you prefer. If I don't want a bottle on the hive I put a cap in the hole to plug it up. No leaks and easy as can be.
