Entrance Reducers, Fall Feeding, Robbing Prevention & Another New Video

We are David and Sheri Burns at Long Lane Honey Bee Farms,

The nectar flow may soon be ending in your neck of the woods. Be sure to start feeding your bees as soon as the nectar flow ends. They are still raising young brood and these developing larvae must continue to be feed well by nurse bees. It will help if you feed your bees. Use our Burns Bees Feeding System now available online.

Poor nutrition can lead to many negative effects on your colony. Fall is coming and even before fall you may see an end to all nectar flows.

Prepare now to begin feeding your bees as soon as the nectar flow ends. Do not let your bees down now. Feed! Feed! Feed!

Our feeding system will keep resources above your hive away from those pesty, fall robber bees.

Our three whole feeder provides screen to keep the bees down when you change your jars or pollen patties. CLICK HERE TO ORDER TODAY
