Beekeeping 4.5 Litre (1 Gallon) Contact Bucket Feeder 'This must be one of the
most effective, quickest and cheapest ways to give your bees a good winter
feed. I use this feeder with all my bees'
Measuring 22cm diameter and 19.5cm deep, these feeders fit nicely into an
empty brood box or super to give the girls a good, quick feed with little or no
fatalities. They can be used to give a quick late autumn feed, or at any other
time for that matter.This design has no mesh feeder hole to get clogged up with
indestructable propolis'. Instead, the feeder incorporates ample perforations
which can be comparatively easily cleared (with something like the end of a
ballpoint pen) at the end of the season ready for storage and re-use.
A variety of feeds can be used in for your bees. Personally, I use a
water/sugar ratio of one pint-to-one-Kilo for a winter feed, and two
pint-to-one-kilo for spring and summer boosts.
A few words of advice - After you have filled your feeder, upturn it several
feet from your hive as a couple of tablespoons of syrup will escape before the
vacuum effect' takes effect, then carefully lower directly over your crown
board hole. This ensures that you cause no syrup dribbles which can attract
