The Ceracell Top Feeder Is The No 1 Top Feeder In America


  • Includes Wooden Support Rim
  • Heavy Duty Construction
  • Made from 100% food grade plastic
  • Patented special corner access system included (Corner Caps Included)
  • Center Chimney Access Cap Included (8 Frame & 10 Frame Only)
  • Available In 5, 8 and 10 Frame Versions


    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.

    Smart Design

    Smart. Can feed a nuc with sugar syrup or solids like fondant, pollen patties, or dry sugar. Since it has 2 separate sides you can pick combinations to feed.

    Not happy

    The 5 frame Ceracell is terrible I have a 10 frame, and it is fine but this one you can’t even fit the top cover on now I have a piece of junk

    5 frame feeder feedback

    My only criticism is the width of the feeder
    It is a little wider than the standard 5 frame nuc box
    With a little ingenuity it worked

    The quality was good and the bee drowning was minimal

    I Would recommend but also suggest buying outer cover that will accommodate the extra width

    Didn’t fit my NUCs

    I ordered two of these feeders, and neither fit my NUC woodware out of the box (ordered from BetterBee). I had to use a table saw to cut the feeder down to size - but otherwise seems to work much better than the style of feeder that relies on floats to keep bees from drowning.
