When I read on here about making my own top feeder, it said to use a gallon glass jar of the type you can get at any local deli.
No local deli's were willing to give me a jar, and the only two jars I could find were at thrift shops.
Last night I was in the local Super Wal-Mart and saw that they had a plethora of them for $2.98 each. They were filled with pickles.
Hope this saves someone some time....
The local food warehouse is where I get my "pickle" jars also.
Just remember that you want wide-mouth
jars to make
filling easier and keep an eye out on the over-all height of the jar
(with the lid screwed on), It must not be taller than a deep hive
body or your top won't fit
Sorry pickles do that to me
