With a large capacity of 4kg, this black plastic frame feeder is perfect when your bees need a little helping hand with food.
It is designed to fit conveniently into the hive and is used to feed sugar syrup or other substitutes to the colony. To use, simply remove one of the frames from the edge of the hive and replace it with the feeder frame. In hive feeders such as this help to avoid loss of syrup from robber bees.
The feeder frame has a ridged inside to help the bees to climb up and down. It is however still best practice to use floatation items (such as pieces of cork or paddle pop sticks) in the syrup so the bees do not drown.
Remember bees need a diverse diet to keep them healthy throughout the year. Canola, sugar syrup, pollen substitutes, pollen sausages and fondant can all be used in this style feeder frame.
