Save $1.00 on 1 Spacer Rims and a Feeding Tray. 10-frame or 8-frame available.
Feeding Trays - See the description and slideshow HERE. Use these trays for making Sugar Lumps, similar to making Candy Boards, but so much easier. Simply put a sheet of newspaper on the plastic tray, wet with water and then start adding a 1-1/2 cups of granulated sugar at a time, spraying each layer with water. This will cause the sugar to harden and will be available to your bees through out the winter if they run out of stores or can't reach them. Repeat sugar and water to about 1/2 short of the top Spacer Rim.
Added bonus, easy to remove and replace. You can check your hives or dust with powdered sugar and then replace if you feel they still need to be feed. Bees rarely use sugar water during cold weather, but they gobble these lumps down.
Our Weatherproofed 1-1/2" Spacer Rims will not rot, do not need to be painted and are ready to put on your hives.

I have used this product for two winters and my Bee's have servived just fine. I have two sets and have one ready to install when the feed gets low so I have the hive open for just seconds to switch trays. I highly recommend the tray and spacer rims for winter feeding of sugar and water mix.
