    Thanks for the hole/plug refill idea. I’ve lost bees as I refill similar frame feeders. You mention using a cork in the feeder tubes. The corks don’t get in the way of the bees getting to the syrup?

      I make the plugs by flattened a bottle cap, driving a nail through the centre and pushing a cork on the nail. The cork on the nail can be trimmed, thinned out, because it doesn’t have to fit tightly in the plug hole.

      “The corks don’t get in the way of the bees getting to the syrup?”

      Maybe a little. But you can cut the corks into smaller pieces so they’re not as bulky. That usually works.
