I have been using the Mountain Camp method.
But, I lay down a Mann Lake pollen patty first and pour the sugar over the patty. The bees love it!
I mixed the sugar 50:50 using granulated sugar and Drivert.
C & H Drivert is about 4.0% invert and it readily absorbs moisture.
I made some feed rims last year that are 3/4" deep with an ACX plywood cover.
Good Luck

PRO-Leen is the new phagogastic stimulant that mann lake is offering with there beepro patties -i think it is like honey bee healthy-(they wont say)-i suspect lemon grass and spearmint or wintergreen -the bees go for it right off and consumption is way better than before the bees are clustering around these patties in feed rims like you would not believe -it is almost like they cant resist the stuff- i am still waiting to see if they make any more brood or not but so fare i have had to spend more on patties because they are munching them like no tomorrow -the pro-leen is at 4% cheesy RDY-B

Ernie, good idea.  We'll have to call that the "MountainCamp Method - Lucas Variant".   grin

I think I may try that next year if I need to feed and see how it goes.


I had some that I'm trying to limp along this winter too, and snapped a couple photos of their status today.





Will watch to see how they do.  These hives are light.

The cluster must be tight. So far they have consumed the sugar.
Good luck!

Looks like mine.



Now we'll see how much they liked the -7F last night.
