Technosetbee Top Feeder - Ultra 5.1 Litre with top entry950-0061
The Ultra Top Feeder has a lip around the outer edge to locate over wooden boxes. It consists of two feeders. The outer feeder holds 4 litres of syrup and the inner feeder 1.1 litres. The inner feeder has only small entries to the feeder gallery to restrict the quantity of syrup taken per day. Some beekeepers use the inner feeder for feeding syrup with additives because it is easy to remove and clean. There is a 15mm recess under the inner feeder to feed small pollen patties. To feed large pollen patties, remove the inner feeder, add the pattie direct over the frames and fit the supplied lid over the pollen pattie to prevent bees getting into the syrup feeder and drowning.
The feeder has small air vents at each end. They line up with small vents in the roof. This is excellent for getting rid of moist air in the hive.
The feeder includes a top entry designed for winter conditions and where snow can block the bottom entrance. Click shut in summer.
Also acts as a hive mat.
