Who likes them?
- The dealers that get $50 a pop for them.
I'm with Randy. In my opinion the best feeder is the inverted glass jar. The price is right and they come in many sizes
They work better in colder weather because the bees can cluster right up to the jar. To inspect, I just turn the jar right side up and set it on the top of the hive next to it.
I guess the bee equipment dealers wouldn't make too much profit off of selling jars, so they needed to invent something that would make people think they need a "real" bee feeder.
Ditch the hive top feeder and head to your local deli and get the gallon glass jars. The only regret you'll have is dropping $50 for the "real" bee feeder, when you could have had the "best" bee feeder for FREE :lol:
Just put an empty medium super around the quarts, or a deep around the gallons.click any image for larger view
