Bizzy Bee Feeder

A Newly Designed Patent Pending Top of Hive Feeder - Designed and made in the U.S.A.

As an enthusiastic beekeeper, I struggled with being able to properly feed and manage my hives.


I was disappointed with the different feeder styles I purchased.

  • Entrance feeders require frequent refilling, often leak, and can encourage robbing. 
  • Internal feeders drown many bees, take up valuable frame space and required the hive to be opened. 
  • Feeding pollen patties required a spacer to be installed to provide a sufficient gap to close the outer cover.
  • Feeding dry pollen or granulated sugar requires wax paper to be placed on top of the frames.


Other hive management tasks required other components.

  • During colder months, I had to add a foam insulator under the outer cover to help insulate the top of the hive. 
  • Monitoring the internal temperature and humidity, required  a spacer under the outer cover to create the extra space needed for the sensors I used. 


Unable to find a versatile product with more than one purpose, I decided to design a feeder with features and functions I knew would help me manage my hives more effectively. 


After incorporating different ideas, testing various prototype designs, and 3 years of trial and error, I finally created the Bizzy Bee Feeder.


Simply stated: I wanted to develop something that would not only benefit my bees, but help other backyard beekeepers become more successful at hive  management.
