How long will sugar syrup last before it goes bad?
« on: April 23, 2008, 02:02:36 PM »
My package bees have been shipped, so I made up some sugar syrup last night and put it in gallon water jugs. I called the PO this morning and they say no bees yet, so I need to know if I need to refrigerate the syrup or if it will be ok left at room temp for a day or 2 ?

it will probably be fine, but I always put mine in the fridge.

you can even freeze it if you put it in a freezer safe container.

I put any I have leftover at the end of the year in the fridge.  Otherwise I just leave it outside by the hives sealed in a galon jug of course.  It's always been fine.
