    Bees DO NOT transfer disease from clean feed.
    Robbing bad honey combs would be a foul brood problem. Just WHAT disease were you thinking??
    If you listened you would have also heard this was emergency feeding 124 NUCS that would have starved due to bad weather.
    Those also were NOT wasps but YELLOW JACKETS which are so small and quick they sneak into hives to rob anyway.
    Now I am BARKING MAD.

    Your all barking mad , this has got to be the quickest way for bees to transfer a diesease to each other and to allow wasps to feed at all is just wrong, I under stand the need to feed as a beek my self but i would never ever allow anyone to do this or to allow anyone to evan think of it, thsi realy is very very poor beekeeping practises

    I too feed in the open frequently. I also have some inside feeders and entrance feeders. I use the entrance alot but rarely the inside as it is just too much trouble and takes up frame space.
