My Beemax hive top feeder


#1

Just incase you haven’t seen one yet. i really like these feeders. I have an 8 frame different style one that fits the Flow hive great and they don’t drown in there either…

Ryan,

Thanks for introducing that feeder. Where did you secure/buy it from.?? Looks like a neat top-feeder… Here’s mine:

I have to styles n yes … Do loss a bee or so once in awhile.

Wow! Looks like your vegetation is changing n autumn in the air there in Alaska ! Our large leaf maples, cottonwood n few others are flagging fall colors here in Western Washington also. Sun is rising later n setting earlier for sure !! (About 3 to 4 minute change per day now.).

Thankz for the share bro,

Here’s where you can get them. They have them for wood hives or beemax hives.

I notice a lot less drowning with the Brushy Mountain feeder that Gerald shows. You can get them here: http://www.brushymountainbeefarm.com/Feeders/products/113/

Ryan,

I too have this feeder and have found it very easy to use. I have been searching everywhere for an answer to a ventilation question I have regarding the use of this feeder and have not found anything decisive. Do you have any ventilation issues when using this feeder? I use a SBB and am concerned that I might not be providing enough ventilation for my bees. It has been suggested that I bore a hole in my top brood box, but I am really unsure if this is the right way to go. I live in Maine and this is my first year beekeeping. I would appreciate any advice you could give.
