Late winter/spring feeding
« on: March 21, 2005, 07:41:00 PM »
Have been checking my bees every month and started a 2 to 1 sugar syrup with fumigil last week.  Am I doing something right?

2:1 is for Fall feeding when you want them to store it away for winter.

1:2 is used to stimulate the queen to start laying & 1:1 is used to encourage comb building.
