That sounds like the one. No good then. I also thought rapid feeders were no good for autumn feeding - not sure why.Is this the one that you're supposed to use with their £6 eke? If so, I tried it and ended up binning it.
Cheap and tacky! Stick to a rapid feeder or frame feeder.
Did you have a float in the frame feeder? I have a piece of wood in there that has holes through it, so the bees stand on it and drink the syrup down. Not much room to drown.Frame feeder is frame-sized and you put it in the hive in place of an ordinary frame. I've tried it but got too many drowned bees.
Is there anyone out there who can answer the question above?But my real question is regarding use of rapid and contact feeders for the final Autumn feed? I was under the impression that is was beneficial, in fact important that, one uses an Ashforth type feeder at this time. Is that so and why? Maybe I am reading too many books or the wrong books!!
Has anyone experience with Thorne's plastic drop-in feeders for national hives?
Farther in law has one and I have one to be used. Bees like it BUT it does get a lot of comb built up underneath.
Does what it says on the tin
