I mixed up some megabee today. I started to spoon some out on wax paper and form my patty. I am about 10 in and have decided this is a real pain in the rear. When you make up a bunch do you take the time to wrap up each patty? Anyone just take the bucket of mix out to the yard and slap some on the top bars? Do you put wax paper down before you slop some on? Or just do it?

I guess what ever I have left over after sloping some on I can scrap the rest into some large ziplocks and put in the freezer.

That's perfect! Thanks for the pics.

How many pounds you got on there?

Outstanding video. You may want to screw the pollen cutter to the pole. :D

It will stick to the inside of the bag. Makes a mess to try to feed later!!

fine looking hives there Keith, the only thing stops us over here from ever putting loads of sub on is SHB, that would be a mess here, hope its a long time before you get them..

Keith, looking a the video made me wonder if all you feed if pollen sub? I didn't see no kind of syrup feeders, or do you feed syrup at other times?

He uses more words in this video than all his posts combined. :D
That's because I can't spell:), you wan't to see somthing funny was how long it took get up loaded to youtube, it was all I could do to get the on/off botton right on the camera.

TWT, I feed HEAVY in the fall, I don't have much time to feed in the winter/spring.Note in the video the frames of brood with capped honey on the corners in the BROOD NEST.

I've helped with this a few times. We dumped the tub out in the pickup, covered with plastic and walked it flat. Made it easier to fit in the hive. Great video.
