You take the top and inner cover off your colony and put this "small super" on top. Fill it with 2-one gallon zip lock baggies filled with 6 pints of syrupon top of the frames. Cut two 1-1/2" slits on the tops of each bag. Run a little syrup into the bees so they will know it is there and you will be amazed at how well this feeder works. You put 1-1/2 gallons of feed on a colony at a time. Fill the bags at home and take them to your bee yard in a box. You will love this method of feeding. Click Here for Instruction Sheet
This is my first year as a beekeeper and the baggie feeder works great! Its easy to use and there are hardly any drowning bees. I placed the feeder under the inner cover as the detailed description says, but the bees made a lot of burr comb in the feeder. I switched the feeder to be on top of the inner cover, and then put the outer cover on top and it works great!

Baggie Feeder Review
The wood is low grade with several knots and the grooves that are made to hold the frame together break easily. The final product is decent, but I do wish it had been labeled Some Assembly Required in the first part of the description. It is in the instruction sheet link, but I missed it. I purchased this thinking I would save a little time and work, however, it would have been just as easy to pick up the lumber and make it myself. Over all it will probably last forever and serve its purpose well.
