I had about a dozen drown. they weren't taking much of it and it takes (this one) 2 frames away. I thing the other feeders might be better.

I have a couple of the brushymountain ones I used a few years ago.
They do work well.
One trick I found to make them easier was I cut a thin piece of stainless flat bar and put it over the opening.
This keeps the bees in the hive while I service it.
Works really well.
