Hi folks! I bought these this past winter to use for feeding winter patties and early spring syrup baggies. They’re super helpful and came with entrance holes with plastic plugs in case you don’t want an upper entrance.
When I put my Flow super on one hive, I was not quite finished with my refurbishment project and the peaked cover/roof still needed another coat of sealant. I used a feeder rim to provide just enough space under a standard outer cover to be able to open the back door for viewing. And, was happy to let the bees keep their top entrance, so returning foragers can fly straight into the super. I even left it on after I replaced the standard outer cover with the Flow peaked roof when it was ready - it bumps the roof up enough for the notch on the inner cover to work as an upper entrance.
