Hive Doctor Therma-Feeder 8.5L
SKU / FEPLTFEPS
The new Hive Doctor Therma-Feeder provides insulation and feeding all-in-one. Developed to save you TIME and MONEY, whilst lowering winter mortality and ensuring you have earlier, stronger brood build up.
Insulation (particulary in the roof) has been proven to both retain warmth (Winter) and reflect external heat (Summer). Insulation assists the colony by reducing extreme temperature variations within the hive, resulting in less energy needed by the bees to manage these variations.
Well insulated hives have shown significantly lower winter mortality, earlier brood build-up in spring and ultimately an increase in honey production.
Made from High Density Polystyrene (HDP) the Hive Doctor Therma-Feeder comes pre-painted and includes plastic reinforced access areas on the front and back.
NOTE: Not suitable for use with the Therma-Lid unless a roof is used.
