I have a project nuc a very small swarm that I'm having fun working with. The queen is laying eggs and they fill up about 2 frames in the nuc but my question lies in the feeder..... They have been sipping on the same sugar water for about 2 weeks and they haven't finished it off and there are quite abit of drowned girls in the water. I have some cedar chips floating in the feeder to help with the drowning but should I dump the sugar water which is 1 cup water to 1 cup sugar and start over of leave it till its gone??
I'm not needing it to produce honey but that would be nice I just want them to get into a deep and over winter and give me a honey flow next season. What should I do??
