Robson Feeder for National Hive
Made from Cedar Wood, this Feeder has 2 clear 1 litre plastic feeder compartments for syrup or fondant feeds. Both feeders can be used for either feed, or a combination of syrup and fondant offered in each feeder. The feed is kept warm and moist from the heat of the hive, protected by the insulation provided in the Robson Feeder Board. The feeders are protected by an insulated foam quilt. Feeding trays can be easily lifted out for cleaning, replacement Feeding Trays also available on our website.
Place a crown board on top of the Robson Feeder Board, under the hive roof, when closing up the hive. Bees can be easily monitored by viewing feed left in each feeder, without disturbance to the bees or opening the hive and causing any heat loss.
When using fondant in the Feeding Tray, remove the plastic slider. Bees access the food supply from under the Feeding Trays.
