This is the supplemental pollen substitute feeder I’ve rigged up. there is a little of the pollen sub in the container, an opening on the side, and a little honey smeared on inside of the top. figure this will keep out any rain. its sitting in water to stop the ants from finding it. Am not looking to really push the hive, but want to make sure they have enough brood, and enough food, to get through the winter.
Today is a dreary rainy day and a perfect day for opening the hive. unfortunately, its also a busy day and there is no working with the bees in a rush, so hopefully, there will be another chance soon.
