FALL FEEDING IS SO IMPORTANT!

Beekeepers often fail to keep enough food strategically placed in the hive for maximum brood build up.  Studies have shown that bees need protein (pollen) as much if not more than just sugar or sugar water. The Burns Bees Feed System places the food strategically above the brood nest area, keeping food where bees can always access it even on cold fall days. Available for 10 frame or 8 frame hives.

NEW VIDEO JUST RELEASED TODAY!
In this new video David walks you through how to clean up a mess when you forget and leave a frame out and the bees build stray comb everywhere. Click on the image below
