BeeMax® HiveTop Feeder: 8 FR
This innovative, leak-proof Hive Top
Feeder is so much better than the old
wooden style. In fact, it is practically
maintenance free. Constructed of a seamless,
one-piece polystyrene unit, it NEVER
needs sealing or resealing. Bees enter at
the front and are kept from the bulk of
the syrup by a Plexiglas panel.
Ship Weight: 8 lbs.
Hint 1: Paint the outside of this feeder with a good exterior
Hint 2: Leave the feeder on all winter to increase top
Hint 3: A good beekeeper in Troy, NY recommends scoring
the Plexiglas panel on the inside to add some traction
for little bee feet.
Making Sugar Syrup: For fall feeding, add enough water
to 24 lbs. of sugar to make 3 gallons. For spring feeding,
add enough water to 18 lbs. of sugar to make 3 gallons.
