Double Jar Feeder

The picture above is our double jar feeder that we made. This feeder will be filled with a 50/50 mix of water and sugar for the bees to eat when they first arrive in the hive. The reason for the feeder is so the bees get acclimated to the new hive and queen.  Once the bees are comfortable in the hive the jar will be removed from the top box and the bees will roam for  their own for food.
