Well, I have this type of feeder that I am having a couple of problems with. Problem no.1 is that every 4th day (when I open the top cover to feed) I find ants in the feeding tray. Is there any remedy apart from making the hive ant proof i.e: Lifting it off the ground and using grease on stand legs etc? Problem no.2...the biggest...In this type of feeder I regularly find bees in the feeding tray (it should be out of bounds for them.) It seems that when the feed is taken all, the bees crowd themselves in the feeder hence lifting the clear part, giving access to the tray to themselves...then the worst part is that most get trapped and die in the feeding tray. Has this happened to any of you who maybe use this type of feeding system??
