A hive with water??
« on: March 23, 2005, 02:52:25 PM »


Do you use this kind of hive! Do you have plans, or can you explain how (from where) the bees drink the water.
In my country we dont use this kind of hive.

Please explain, is very important.

TNKS!

Looks like a Langstroth hive with a bordman entrance feeder. I have no idea what the plastic thing on top of the outter cover is! :shock:

But how the bee drink the water. What is inside the mechanism. Can you do a drawing! It's a holey hood and the water drop inside? It is efficient?

It is a glass jar with a lid screwed on top of it. The lid has many tiny holes poked in it for the water to come through. The jar is turned upsidown, and the feeder holds it up so the bees can crawl in and under the lid to drink the water through the tiny holes. :D

The white thinggy on the top looks like a cap on a PVC pipe. Is there an article to go with the picture? I wonder if someone put in-hive plumbing.

I'm thinking that thing on top is for ventilation - like a ventilation cap on a home.

I think someone took it off of something else and rested it on top of the hive and then forgot to remove it before taking the picture!! :lol:

It's a feeder and has sugar water in it, not just water.

Here is where it tells what the pipe on top is for;

http://www.beecare.com/indexDynFrames.htm?http://www.beecare.com/Feeding/Feeding.htm&1

The watering is just the jar you see on the front. The jar is turned up side down and sits in the holder on the bottom front of the hive. There is a space left between the bottom of the holder and the lid of the jar. The lid has holes in it and the bees will crawl into the space and get water when they need it.

How ever I have read many places that bees prefer dirty water, straight from the mud.

The thing on top is definitely for feeding sugar syrup. I've seen those in person when I got my nuc box from a big-time apiary.
