Ceracell listened to the beekeeping community, and here you have their new improved Ceracell Blue Top Feeder! It has all the benefits of the previous design, but as we all know, beehives are mounted sloping slightly forward, and when feeding the bees sugar syrup in a top feeder with only a center chimney cap there is always half a Litre that the bees can't get to, now with our patented protected corner access system bees will now have access to all the syrup you feed them.  This is the new industry standard!

The kit includes, blue top feeder, corner caps, chimney cap and an assembled wooden untreated rim.

Extra Heavy Duty with underside ribs for strength. Made from 100% virgin food grade plastic. This comes in the most popular medium size holding 8.5 Litres.  "Why blue?" you may ask.  Because this is special!  It is a product that stands out from everything else on the market, hence the special corner access system is patented, and Ceracell want it to stand out visually as well.

Top feeders are great for feeding raw or dry white sugar in the early and mid-winter.  Feeding in this way, don't use a "chimney cap" and let the bees range across the feeder.  Raw sugar is considered better, as it has a bit of moisture in it already and the bees can work it and take it up.  If using dry white sugar you may want to add a small damp sponge to the top feeder to give the bees some moisture to work the sugar.

In the late winter/early spring you may want to feed a heavy syrup (2 kg of white sugar to 1 Litre of water, heated until fully dissolved). This shouldn't stimulate the queen to lay and with it being in a top feeder she shouldn't sense too much the sugar coming in.  When feeding in this way, use a chimney cap to restrict the bees and prevent them from getting out in the bulk of the liquid.  This will minimise drowning.  If you don't have a chimney cap, you can fill the feeder with pebbles, or twigs, or some people use lots of polystyrene which will float and give the bees a place to sit above the syrup.
