GREAT FOR BEGINNERS: These feeders are easy to understand and use, both by the beekeeper and the bees. These are popular because they don't require any specialized equipment and are universal in their design.
HOW IT WORKS: These feeders slide into the entrance of a Langstroth hive where the bees walk into the feeder to feed. The syrup is placed in a common ball or mason-type jar and sealed with the included perforated lid. When inverted and placed in the feeder, the syrup will drip briefly the vacuum pressure in the jar.
FITS MOST JARS: The small-mouth jar screws onto the included lid and sets into the plastic base. It's important to have a tight seal to prevent the jar from leaking and syrup from draining out.
USE MULTIPLE: Several feeders can be placed in the entrance of a 10 or 8 frame hive, reducing the need to visit the hives to refill feeders as frequently.
FEEDER PARTS: Each feeder includes a plastic base with multiple steps so it can fit different entrances sizes, a metal, pre-punched lid to fit a small mouth mason jar, and a removable cover so the lid can be popped out easily and the base can be cleaned if necessary.
