    This Ceracell  top feeder is the no 1 top feeder on the market. Its extra-durable underside ribs are designed for security and strength. You can use it with the corners open, with or without corner caps, or with central access.  The center chimney has holes  in them to allow your honeybees to feed from the chimney area. This gives you 5 areas from which the bees can feed. FANTASTIC!

    Top feeders are great for feeding raw or dry white sugar in the early and midwinter. If you’re feeding in this way, don’t use a “chimney cap”; just let the bees range across the feeder. Raw sugar is considered better, as it has a bit of moisture in it already and the bees can work it and take it up. If using dry white sugar, you may want to add a small damp sponge to the top feeder to give the bees some moisture to work the sugar.

    If this top feeder isn’t what you’re looking for, we sell a Premium Beehive Top Feeder. We also carry a variety of entrance feeders, including the hard-wearing Wooden Boardman Entrance Feeder.

    Easy Feeder

    It is so simple to use this feeder. Put it on top of your hive bodies, put in either sugar water or solid feed and you're done. To fill, remove the outer cover, feed and you're done. SIMPLE!

    Ceracell top feeder is clearly a high quality feeder, I have two other brands from two other major suppliers, and these have quickly become my preferred feeder

    Hundreds of my bees drowned in my feeder, the chimney top doesn’t lock in place. I used a dense feed (commercial syrup). I suppose the lid "floated?" and the bees pushed through and drowned; I mean by the hundreds. The chimney cap should have the same "lock in place" mechanism as the corner lids which snap in place with a “click”. Im angry/sad since my bees might not make it through the winter with such a decrease in numbers.

    Convenient and easy to use

    I had to go out of town, and my daughter who has no experience with bees, was able to easily feed them without a problem. This feeder is very convenient and allows feeding without disturbing the hive. It not only holds liquid feed, but also sugar or fondant for cold winter months. I really like this feeder!

    Love the fact that you can fill the feeders without getting a face full of bees! Easy to keep clean! Now if it would just kill varroa and SHB!!
