I got rid of my boardman feeders because they were going through syrup too quickly and switched to 1 qt. mason jars with a 1 1/2" hole drilled in the cover.I also have an open community feeder for them to use,using both seems to work well.2kooldad said:ok...see...im paying attention an learning...i saved an printed the lecture too...i couldnt feed them all the time anyways....little winged piglets...when i had feeders on them this spring they never quit eating it...i waited for them to lose intrest like everybody said they would...if they did i couldnt tell...when i stopped it didnt seem to matter cuz they had honey comming in...That was well after the citrus bloom...i just figured they were opertunists and would take whatever was easy...so i abruptly weened them...before they started more brood most of the frames were heavy and i was afraid they would become honey bound...now they are exploding with brood and most of the frames are light...i have boardman feeders now but am trying to switch over to top box feeders with a little more volume than a quart jar has.
