Hello! I designed this bee feeder (not to be confused with the stoic Beefeaters of old). The idea is simple - provide a nice place where bees can collect water for their pollenation, feeding, and hive-keeping chores.

The feeder requires a "wide mouth" mason jar as water container. I used a Ball wide mouth jar with an outside diameter of 3 3/8" (86mm).

In my yard I keep blue orchard bees (BOBs) and green orchard bees (GOBs), both of which need ready sources of water and dirt to make mud walls protecting their eggs.

Their little homes and this freshwater bath are the least I can offer these fellas helpfully pollinating my garden!

This is a single piece print that needs no supports or rafts. Enjoy!
