Did this video help you?

Bea Man: All your videos a great!! Make as many as you can.

Warren Keever: When I was a kid my pop was working in the bees; Their was a frame honey laying in the truck bed. So I stick my finger in honey eating I look down what i'm eating not honey! Baby bee eggs. That learn me not too stick finger in the honey when my pop didn't know I was eating it!!! 4/11/2013

Don The Fat Bee Man: @connie139139 I use only 8 frame hives and 5 frame nuc's. the 8's build up lot faster and much lighter to lift.I use no spacers keep the bee space. if your enjoying the videos please make a donation to help in the cost to make more videos. I am not funded by the gov. and have no grants to do my own research that I gladly share with the beekeepers of the world. Don

Don The Fat Bee Man: @MrBeeman59 thanks for watching we made 6 more videos will post them soon. Don

Don The Fat Bee Man: thanks for watching Don

Darkwoods: I use 1 gallon chicken feeders,the water gets low the bees would crawl through the opening,and get stuck in the pail,so i cut scrape screen wire i use on btm boards of hives,laid it in the feeder,,(red lid where the sugar water builds up) I just laid the lid on the wire cut a inter/outer circle and it fit snug.The wire helps them climb in/out,i still get a few drowned bees,but not as many as before..Thanks for the videos,keep up the good work.

marc bee: as allways you have made another great video,but my question is not related to that subject.I am wondering ,if I take a clump of bees maybe 200 or more and I take them within a 2 miles distance to a nectar source,do you think they will recognize the source and go back to the hive and give directions to the source?I thank you for taking the time to read my question.

jmallard34: I like to save a buck too Don.....I recognize the label on that cake icing bucket. They are free at my grocery store deli when they are done with them. Thanks for the videos. I think they're great!

zombiebuggy51: Don I live in zone 7; I think the same as Lula. When do you start feeding in your top feeders. What month/day thanks

Don The Fat Bee Man: if no honey flow is on you run that risk. Don

Elton Sanderson: i like this video and i would like ask what is wrong when i see my bees carrying out baby bees and throwing them out of hive

Paul Rowland: Just left you the note about the Warre hive. I think you are on the right track. All my friends in Georgia experience winter losses in high per cent using standard 10-Frame Langstroth. My Japanese friends have almost no losses. They use hives that are similar in space to the Warre hive. Go Don, you are the man! And thanks!! Hope you address a natural hive size more in future videos.Go Don, you are the man! And thanks!!

Don The Fat Bee Man: its possible they got into pesticide. Don

Andor Pasztor: I would think they either have no room for honey or they are hungry, cannot feed newcomers. Am I wrong?

txfirefighter: I use the chicken feeder for outdoor feeding and have my own hive top feeders I built...they work awsome and I haven't lost a single bee to drowning.

Don The Fat Bee Man: if they need feed now is the time.lift the hives see if there light. Don

Nick Crites: Hi Don, I made special "feeder hive top lids'. I use the feeder lids that fit on a mason jar and cut a hole in the lid. I used 3/4" plywood to make the lid. I can feed all 12 hives in 2 minutes. No bee jacket necessary even for mean bees. Dadant sells a jar that is comparable to a 2 quart jar. This will last 2 days.

Ben Little: So when you put the 5 gallon buckets out, does it cause Robbing?

Don The Fat Bee Man: if you like the video and want me to make more please leave a comment and click the like button Don thanks for watching

doransignal: i have a question about entrances. there is 2 sizes on my wooden piece for the entrance. should i use the smallest one for a hive that i just started this year or the slightly larger opening? thanks
