I live in the northwest, washington state, Tacoma, and I've begun feeding sugar syrup. I have one hive and this is the first year for me and the bees. They swarmed in June and so I have a new queen after the swarm and they are building up and are beginning to fill up the second deep. I was into the hive this weekend and it looked like they have lots of honey in the top level and the brood area in the bottom have hatched
Anyway I've been adding syrup almost every day and wonder if this will continue. It seems like alot to me, should I bee feeding every day or slower? Will this be necessary until it freezes. They went through a whole gallon in 24 hours.
I also fed bee pro patties and wonder if I should continue giving them this for awhile or is one application ok.
Thanks for any advice or replies.
