Beetek Top Feeders 9.5L (90mm Deep) are one of New Zealands most popular Top Feeders. Buy now with the Beetek Bee Saver clip and Kitset Feeder Rim for a no fuss, and easy way to keep your bees topped up this season. Top Feeders sit at the top of a storey to feed dry or sugar syrup in winter months, this ensures the bees have set stores and are well nourished during the harder months when flows aren’t as prominent.
The kit includes, Beetek top feeder, chimney cap (Bee saver) and an assembled screwed, glued and wax dipped wooden rim, made in Albany.
Studies suggest placement of sugar syrup in hives is best done towards the evening to minimise any tendency for bees to rob the hives that are fed; by simultaneously feeding all hives in the area this further lowers the tendency for robbing.
*Comes with optional wooden rim. To save costs the wood rim can be simply made by cutting down an old box or even made with scrap pallet wood. Just use the same dimensions as a standard box, and 90mm in height.
