Re: Feeder Recommendations
I do as Rader suggested. I use gallon paint cans with holes drilled in the lids. I put them upside down on sticks laying on top of an inner cover, usually directly over the hole in the middle. The bees suck the syrup out and when it comes time to replace the can, I just swap out a full one in a few seconds. I can put two cans on top of the cover if I like. I surround the feeder with an old deep and put the outer cover over the hive. It's worked well for me over the years. My deeps that i use to surround the feeding cans are a different color than my white hives so I can look across the yard and instantly tell which hives I'm feeding and how many cans I'll need to refill.
