This one-gallon in-hive bee feeder is translucent to allow quick checks of syrup levels. Keeps bees safe! Many small channels allow bees to access feed without drowning.

Use both 8 and 10 frame hives by placing directly on the frames or on top of the inner cover with a medium super placed around it to protect robbing.


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.
