I wanted to share a very cool top feeders hack I found on YouTube. I had a large number of bees drowned in my top feeders. This did the trick! They now just come up and drink from the sock.

Here is what I do.

This feeder has only just been put on but the bees will soon fan out across the whole thing and can empty the feeder fairly quickly. It is barley straw which is better than hay for this because hay sinks but barley straw floats, almost never get a drowned bee.
