Hi all!

I am in the market for a frame feeder for the winter and another to work on a modification idea I have. I was at
http://www.candibox.com/
and they were talking about no drownings. I didn't understand how the shape does that, unless I missed something. Has anyone any experience with this system? I'm a bit concerned it takes up two frames though. Thanks! You've all been great straight shooters and I've learned a lot so far. David

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

I have not used one, but basically a frame of comb goes in it and the bees crawl up and down the comb.

I purchased two candibox feeders in 2004.There is less drowning than in the older feeeders,but the drawback is that when full they really get wide-so if you were to do an inspection its pretty tough to get the other frames in and out,they actually become about three and a half frames wide when almost full,and when the supporting frames on the side are removed.
