Technosetbee 4 litre Top Feeder. No Bee Drowning!!
Technosetbee’s top feeders are praised by beekeepers all around the world for their superior design and robustness.
It fits neatly inside the Technosetbee roof and takes no extra space. A lot of beekeepers around the world leave this top feeder on the beehive all year round. It doubles up as a hive mat and allows damp air to exit up through the vents and out the roof vents.
A standard galvanised beehive roof (commonly sold in NZ) with tapered edges will also fit over this feeder nicely.
The bees have a 7mm passage under the white vent covers at each end of the feeder (as shown in the photo) to take the syrup without drowning.
To refill the feeder, simply lift the roof and top up without any disturbance to the bees. Alternatively, a feeder valve can be fitted to the roof to avoid even lifting the roof.
The centre of the feeder is elevated 18mm to cause all the syrup to flow to a bee space under the cap at either end. This elevation allows space for a protein supplement to be fed to the bees under the feeder if required. Paper pie bags are used very successfully by some beekeepers.
The centre cap can be removed to allow bee access into the top chamber when feeding sugar crystals. This is very important over winter if you need to feed the bees without stimulating the queen to lay eggs. Wet burr comb can also be safely stored in these feeders so the bees can clean it out without any robbing issues. On the next visit, the dry comb is very easy to collect.
Can be used on any standard 10 frame Langstroth bee hive.
