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 ?

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

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

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.
