Ashforth Feeder, to suit National Bee Hive

Exclamation Mark As of July 2004 this page will not be further updated. All future updates will occur on the replacement page which is situated at
which will open in a new window if you click on the link.

This is a bottom bee space type of feeder. The design of this type is attributed to Harrison Ashforth. The feeding station is along one edge which means that the main feed reservoir is all in one piece.

One of the objectives in this design is to allow the feeding station to be positioned on the side of the hive that is lowest so that gravity drains all the feed to where the bees can deal with it. However I am suspicious that the edge is not the best place to attract the bees to when conditions are cool or marginal.
