Transform your deep hive body into a haven for feeding. This internal feeder allows you to get feed close to the brood nest by being inserted inside a hive body in place of 2 frames. With textured inner walls as well as a top with entry ladders, traction is plentiful and bees are safely able to climb in and out of the feeder.

Holds up to 95 oz. of sugar syrup and made of rugged polypropylene plastic.

Note:

Product Specifications:

  • Syrup Capacity: 95 oz
  • Dimensions: 8-3/4" tall x 2" wide x 19" long
  • Resting tabs: Extend 5/8"
  • Weight: 1-1/4 pounds

How to Feed Sugar Syrup:

Spring Feeding: Create a 1:1 syrup using 1 lb. water (2 cups) to 1lb. sugar.

Fall Feeding: Make a 2:1 syrup using 2 lb. sugar per 1 lb. of water.

Feeding Notes:

  • When making syrup, water must be very hot to dissolve sugar
  • Do not feed sugar syrup during cold weather when bees are not able to take cleansing flights
  • Do not feed sugar syrup until it is warm enough for bees to fly regularly. If the weather is still too cold, feed winter patties. Pollen patties are used to stimulate build-up of hives in anticipation of the spring flow, but don’t feed them too early because pollen supplements will cause rapid expansion, and there may not be enough bees to keep the brood warm.
