Utilize this Top Feeder to prevent starvation when your beehive has little or no food and supplies! Top feeders are great for feeding raw or dry white sugar in the early and mid-winter, the feeder provides additional nutrients to ensure the hives survival.
HANDY TIP: Studies suggest placement of sugar syrup in hives is best done simultaneously towards the evening to minimize any tendency for bees to rob the hives that are fed; by simultaneously feeding all hives in the area this further lowers the tendency for robbing.
During late winter/early spring you can increase the ratio of Sugar to water (2 to 1 ratio), this ensures the bee colony's are fully nourished in preparation for the busy summer months. When feeding this way it is important to either use the Bee Saver or other natural resources such as twigs or pebbles - this allows the bees to access the sugar syrup while minimizing drowning.
Please Note: Bee saver sold separately.
