Good feeder, like how there's a cover for it to protect the liquid since I had ants and they couldn't enter it thanks to the cover. All I had to do was place this feeder on top of my frames, add a box on top of it (since the size fits inside a deep for mine), outer cover, roof and presto it's all good. Also the fact that it's plastic is great since wood likes to absorb water, so since it's plastic all the girls can have all of the food they want. MY ONLY COMPLAINT: The design is weak and flimsy when handling full of sugar water! It's not sturdy like wooden feeders and I expected it to be sturdy (like Tupperware) yet I ended up wasting some good sugar water because of the flimsy support design when handling. Please do fix this.
Hi Kammie, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review! I am sorry to hear the feeder was flimsy when filled with water, I will pass this info on to our product manager and see if we can make some upgrades to this product as soon as possible!
This feeder worked reasonably well for me - until I made the poor decision to put it into the dishwasher. The lid and tray both warped just enough to make it useless. So, if you purchase, don’t make the same mistake. As for the design, I like the simplicity and ease of use. The bees had no trouble using it and very few drowned. The plastic is thin enough that it will flex when picked up while full.
I love this top feeder. I've had very little die off, and the access is wonderful! Very good product.
Awesome. Can keep bees fed without disturbing them.
Best top feeder ever.
