Two quick questions.   What type of sugar can I use when feeding my bees.  cane,  powdered, beet, corn?Huh

Second question.  Can I water down pure maple syrup and use that.  I know that it is sucrose and possibly easier to digest.   
We make our own on the farm and have a large supply so cost is not a factor.

thanks

See above link.  Anything but clean white sugar will have too many solids and not be good for the bees.  This includes things like maple syrup and molasses.
