tefer, those 1 gallon freezer bags are pretty tough.

For the most part, brand name bags work, just don't use Great Value brand. Had to adjust one once and it ended up running out the bottom board.
Went back to miller style.

I hate my wooden Miller's. Every year they have to be re-caulked and they still always leak from somewhere. I still like my Boardmans, especially this time of year when robbing isnt so prevalent.

Great pics with bag and Mega bee feeding system. I still think a division board feeder would bee easier and safer for the bees if the bag leaked.
It started out fun with 800 hives...and its still fun with 2500.

Just don't over fill the bags and drowning shouldn't be a problem.
