    Interesting - a couple of mine seem to need more weight but are a bit reluctant to take it down, will give that a go.

    Good luck jambo. I fed a bunch last thursday in the rain and checked yesterday to find they had taken all 12 litres and no drowned bees

    Encouraging! Struggling to get my head around why it works.

    RE drowned bees it's a bit odd that I seem to have either hives with zero drownings or quite a few, never seems to be one or two. They're also the ones that don't take the syrup quickly. A numpty gene?
