Check feeder levels without needing to open the hive! This one gallon feeder utilizes a perforated nipple and lock mechanism that fits through a 1" hole in the outer cover (you must drill yourself), and provides feed to your bees inside the hive.

Comes with a cap to close the hole in your outer cover when not feeding.

Note:

    You will need to drill an 1" hole in your outer cover to use this feeder
  • We recommend machine screws when installing into a Beemax cover
  • Read Installation & Use Instructions.
  • Some beekeepers recommend putting Honey Bee Healthy to reduce mold, but always remember to remove feeders with moldy syrup and clean them well before reapplying the feeder and feed
  • Pick up syrup so you are ready to go

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.
