Our 8 and 5 frame top feeder holds just over a gallon and is designed to provide a way for beekeepers to feed a high volume of sugar water or other feed inside the colony.
The feeder can sit over the 8 Frame inner cover or 5 Frame Inner Cover or directly over the frames in a hive. Bees access the food through a hole in the bottom where they can feed on a small amount of syrup without having access to the whole container of syrup.
Too much access to the syrup can lead to excessive drowning in the syrup. The removable cap is placed over the bee's access area to limit exposure to the syrup to prevent drowning.
A rim needs to be placed around the feeder like a 8 frame box or a 5 frame box. It measures 15L" x 5.5W" x 4.375H" and holds just over 1 gallon.
