found a new way for them to suck down 4 gallons in 1 afternoon (not kidding, the little gluttons) I wanted to find a way to feed them but without having to fill things up every day (yet another plan gone to heck) I put 5 gallons in them and put them out at 1st light and I think by dark all 5 gallons will be gone :lol:

Zookeep,

Are those just towels placed around the outside and then some type of mesh over the actual feed bowl to keep them from drowning?

towels are in the feeders to give the bees a ladder out of the food, and the feeders 30 feet away from 10 hives and 4 nucs, few might not be mine but sure most are Rast :lol:
