Re: trouble with a division board feeder
- Division board feeders are a pain. You have to make sure there is a
piece of wood in the feeder that floats freely when you fill it. That
gives the bees something to hang on to. I use them in nucs (4-5
frames) that I'm going to be moving around. It is a hassle to fill
them and to get them out.
I'd recommend some sort of top feeder. Mann Lake has some good 3
gallon feeders that are pretty indestructible. Don't waste time w/
the 1 gallon size. The three gallon is about right for fall or spring
I put the top feeder over an inner cover or migrating cover w/ a hole
in it and then put an empty deep supper and telescoping cover over the
whole thing to protect it from the elements and weather. The top
feeder is nice because you can usually pull it off w/ having to suit

You're welcome! Good place to live except for the drought we're having right now. Hopefully we'll have enough wildflowers for the bees! I'm new at this beekeeping thing myself (first year), but so far all is going well! Knock on wood...Chance C. Geurin (chance@...)RT Logic!

- I have designed a feeder that holds up to six quarts of syrup and
takes the place of a super. It works along the same premise as a hive
entrance feeder, but it is protected from the elements and from
scavengers. I have been contemplating on selling them. If you would
like some pictures and a further description, drop me an e-mail at
Hi everyone! My name is Emmy and I am a first year beekeeper in NC with a lot of questions that I hope you can help me with. I installed my two hives about two weeks ago on Sunday April 21. I have been feeding them sugar water with an outside jar feeder. This seems to be doing the trick...both hives have been going through about a quart of sugar water every three or four days. I went back into the hive this Monday to check things out. I was impressed by all the work they had done. Both hives had worked on about four or five frames. Not really sure what I was seeing. I know that none of the cells were capped but there were some with darker stuff in them and some with a light amber color. I did see the queen on one of the frames so I quess everying was okay. They seem to be working on the cells in a pretty organized fashion...the frames were all covered with either filled cells or the comb had been nicely drawn out. Does it sound like everything is all right? What is in the cells and how can I tell which is honey and which is brood. My other major question is about space and when to add another brood chamber or start adding supers. I was planning on going back into the hives two weeks from the last time. Are they going to run out of room in the brood chamber by then? Do I need to add another brood chamber or just start adding supers for honey? Any advice would be appreciated!
Thanks so much;
