    Default Double Nuc Box Feeder Advice Needed

    I'm going to be starting with Double Nuc Boxes this summer. The design is a divided deep hive body, except the entrances are on the same side.

    I'm looking for feeders for these nuc boxes.

    I've been looking at Brushy Mtn's Plastic Nuc Feeder and entrance feeders.

    I'm wondering what feeders others are using?

    Thanks, Rich

    Gallon cans above the inner cover hole, surrounded by an empty hive body.

    Did you look in the paint section at Home Depot or Lowe's?

    In one of the other posts, Lowe's has food grade plastic pails.

    I bought mine from a supply company I found online. I have bought them from paint stores like Sherwin Williams. Get epoxy lined.

    I've purchase the epoxy lined ones Palmer speaks of at Home Depot for about $6.

    Are the cans you are talking about metal epoxy lined paint cans with plastic lids?

    Plain metal cans with metal friction fit covers. Where do you go to buy paint? They usually have empty cans. Auto parts stores usually have empty cans. You can buy them by the case online. Get epoxy lined without ears or bails.

    First one I came to...
