Feeding heavy now. The bees will take the feed readily in the 70's. As it cools the bees don't take the feed as well. If a beekeeper has to get alot of feed in the hive in a hurry, a hive top feeder works great. They hold four gallons of syrup and the syrup is available to many more bees than a feeder pail or frame feeder.
|The bees come up from below through the open channels and move down to what ever the level of the syrup is.|
|Hive Top Feeder The feeder goes on top of the top box|
