    I too feed in the open frequently. I also have some inside feeders and entrance feeders. I use the entrance alot but rarely the inside as it is just too much trouble and takes up frame space.

    Your all barking mad , this has got to be the quickest way for bees to transfer a diesease to each other and to allow wasps to feed at all is just wrong, I under stand the need to feed as a beek my self but i would never ever allow anyone to do this or to allow anyone to evan think of it, thsi realy is very very poor beekeeping practises

  6. Fantamonkey says:

    Hahaha! You’re a man of action!!! :)

    Bees DO NOT transfer disease from clean feed.
    Robbing bad honey combs would be a foul brood problem. Just WHAT disease were you thinking??
    If you listened you would have also heard this was emergency feeding 124 NUCS that would have starved due to bad weather.
    Those also were NOT wasps but YELLOW JACKETS which are so small and quick they sneak into hives to rob anyway.
    Now I am BARKING MAD.

    hay do you think 1 1/8 hole will work for the bottle feeding on the top of the hive and what in sort is on the hive can you explain that a little more please thanks jon new beekeeper

  9. retiredtrucker50 says:

    do yellow jackets try to live in the hives with the bees?

  11. johnpluta says:

    NO,they just rob honey and cause guard bees stress trying to keep them out,small and fast

  12. mattheweanfeldman says:

    What on the hive does the bottle fit into, it looks like metal ring

  13. debay777 says:

    I look at Beeking the natural way. Im already interupting the natural order of things keeping them in a box. I dont want to do much more than that. I dont feed sugar anymore. I just installed a package of bees and I fed them the can of syrup that came with them and thats about it.

  14. F2L4Life says:

    FYI, yellow jackets are members of the wasp family.

  15. jav8or says:

    were you getting stung when you were doing this?

  16. UmmahTube says:

    @justinRkeaton Well i am sure if you have a good hive full of bees then when any yellow jackets try to intrude they can get swarmed. Please correct me anyone if i am wrong.

  17. Hamish121212 says:

    What do you have attached to the top of the hive cover to make the bottle sit into it?

  18. magprob says:

    I think it’s a great way to feed a lot of bees fast for late fall storage. I would rather do that than risk a massive starve out in the winter. Dead bees don’t produce anything. Plus, I just love squishing yellow jackets!
    Thank you John for all your videos and help for us guys that are just starting out. Could you do a video on how you manage your nucs? If you have one, I can’t find it. I see that you stack nucs. How long do you build them up in nucs until you put them in standard hives?

  19. kimberkep says:

    What is the fitting that you are using on the nucs for the bottles? Thanks for the great info!

  20. Mrmizilplix says:

    So does anyone know what was holding the bottle????? Some kind of plumbing??

  21. sirgas321 says:

    thx now i know how to clean older frames :D really i didint know that

  22. ZettaiOtakuu says:

    Do the bees eventually kill the yellow jackets themselves?
    Ah, this is such a neat video. :D

  23. koongienoob says:

    did anyone else get itchy after he zoomed to the swarm of bees
