I put some syrup on last week in a hive top feeder. I thought it would all be gone by this weekend, but they had stopped taking it. I boiled up some more not knowing that they were not taking it. I went ahead and added the warm syrup to that which I put put in last week. They immediately started into the feed. When I checked this afternoon (we have had a nice sunny day), the bees were busy accessing the feed. Foragers are still bringing in pollen in a steady stream. I am not sure what this means, but I am thinking it is a good thing.
When they stop taking the feed, is this when I remove the feeder an put a sugar candy board beneath an inner cover?
