This will fit a National hive or nucleus box and hold about 2 pints of syrup. It comes with a small FLOAT to put inside and act as a little’life raft’ to avoid residents meeting a’sticky end’! This feeder can be used for Spring and summer feed to stimulate activity, or later in the year as a winter feed. I personally use a Sugar to water ratio of 500g to a pint earlier in the season and 1Kg to a pint later on. But this is a personal preference. This wooden feeder is sealed with waterproof PVA glue with a Bitumen outer coat, and tested for leaks before dispatch. Avoid squashing or dropping which may damage the seal leading to a leak. A handy hint in such a case to fix your leak is to melt a couple of ounces of bees wax in a measuring jug by microwaving it. Then pour the molten wax into your feeder and wash it up and down the sides and bottom corners in your feeder.
