Tim Carroll: Don,do you leave the feeders on in the winter?
Zak White: In edition to no drown...... You may put river rocks, gravel in the bottom if you wish. You can steam gravel/rocks if you want to sterilize them. Of coarse cleaning the tray helps keep the bee feeder clean.
pauline arsenault: I watched your video which mentioned salt for the bees...can I use pink Himalayan salt blocks? I have some small ones on a twine string and thought it would be as good for the bees as it is for humans instead of table salt that has no minerals left in it. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Kidder Seven: have you used beesmart designs bee hive feeder? it is a cover and feeder combination. I'd like to see reviews from other users about this feeder.
Blake Leopold: Hi Don-
Just found your videos. I'm going to try your 5 frame method. How can I get the plans for the 5 frame top feeder?
sailrbill: In the 50's we started keeping bees in Georgia. Everyone in the family was involved and it was a lot of fun. My father bought 50 lbs of sugar several times from a local store and not long after we had a visit from the law wanting him to convince them we wern't making Shine lol. Seeing your vid on feeding bees brought that memory back.
Denis kaiyumi: Hi I just woud like ti know if you have any top feeder for a Langstroth 1o frame hive ?
Im trying to build some with plywood and a jigsaw to save some bucks but im not sure mine are the best design
Marc R: What about feeding in the winter due to not great amounts of honey? What to use and feed
thanks.. great videos
Timo Bouwer: Good day Don, like your progress on the feeder over the last couple of years. I learned a lot from your U tube movies the last four months. Got my first hive two months ago. What a feast, they had (the bees) I become a master bee feeder overnight. Used an old trough away container with a thin piece of perforated foam rubber. It acts like a float, no drowning and the bees can fill the whole surface and have more than enough space to suck and the float is always on the surface.
Eddie Osama: thank you so much for all these videos . i'm a new bee keeper just got two nuks mid august they where 5 frames . now they are 7 frames with mix of brood honey and pollin . I live close to Philadelphia area . my question is should I add another deep on or super or none ,i'm feeding them well . the bee keepers around here saying that they will fill the second deep . but I don't think so , please let me know asap .
CJ Faulkner: How does this fit into the hive? I must be really dumb but I can't figure out how it will work. How often will I have to fill it?
Tim Bradshaw: Do you ever see robbing with your top hive feeder?
Stan Graves: 3rd Attempt, trying to figure this out. I'm new at the Honey Bee Thing, I was watching your feeder video. I was woundering if you could use a wick system where your feeder ladder is? I've had some rock candy in our kitchen window. The string is just doubled and the sugar seems to crystalize close to the top. Can bees consume granulated sugar
Margie Knapp: exactly what I needed to know. Thanks!
karl w: hi i have a question about my beehive.Iam just starting out. And my question is do i need a queen extractor between my super and brood box ? you said in one of your youtube videos that you dont like to use them. but i would like to harvest some honey . from time to time . .
Peggy Lyttle: what is the name of the existing video; I could not find it by name only. I love yor organic, natural pest preventions and management!
Don The Fat Bee Man: I will do one we stay busy here but I will I already have many in my videos now
Peggy Lyttle: you had said you were going to do a video for a natural or organic mix for Bee Healthy. Did you do that? If so, what is called?
Don The Fat Bee Man: I don't use sugar cakes some people do I just feed honey or sugar on hive top feeders.
Don The Fat Bee Man: leave in jugs its for storage of wax in top.
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
