This item is a great help I can feed the bees without disturbing them. As I am a new bee keeper it would be of great help if items had a some basic instruction on how to use an item.
Excellent. Easy to use and works great.
Delivery was quick. They said 1 hr assembly. If you are good at carpentry, and/or have a work with a vice, and/or a good assistant. I haven't found it as easy to peek in through the windows as I thought. The ladies started out slowly. The ladies in the Langstroth hive were much bigger eaters and were more active. The Warre hive, however, caught up with them. They seems to be happy as clams, producing honey and "younguns". Those are my comments so far (a little more than a month). I will be checking back in towards the end of the season.
I placed a feeder in a box on top of the warre hive. The bees got into it right away. What I like best about the feeder is that you can refill it without removing the feeder and with no risk to the bees.
Excellent feeders absolutly no drowning. Do not use for the first few day if you are treating with Apiguard some of my bees must have been overcome by trapped fumes. I have been using these 4 months and have not drowned a bee yet, except when I used Apiguard, now I remove feeder for the first 3-4 days of treatment and all is good I just bought 2 more.
