I have been clearing about 1.5 acres of forest over the winter for the bees (new beekeeper started last year, get the bees established first and then put in the orchard – everyone is happy). Over the past few weeks, I have cut down a number of ash and hickory. The sap bleeds out of the stumps and my bees have been having a field day with the sap. Is this the same as sugar water to them? I know I should have taken a picture but there were about 75 of them on one stump ~ 12 inches in diameter last week.
