Community bucket feeders

Post by quentin »

Made 3 bucket feeders. Bees seem to like them. Anyone using this or similar type community feeder? What are the pitfalls in using these? Met a fellow at Costco who claimed to have Many hives and uses this type feeder exclusively. I guessed he was a bee keeper by the 6 each 25 lb bags a sugar in his cart, figured he was feeding bees or making moonshine, either way a good person to know. Claimed he had less robbing with these when placed away from hives and removed jar and hive top feeders.

You tube video on how to make a bucket feeder (not a good video...just A video):
