I have 2 weak hives going into winter one was a swarm i caught late and a spit i made to try and prevent the swarm prior to them swarming darn bees anyhow they do not have enough stores to make it through winter and iv been feeding them from the time i realized they wouldn't have enough is it possible to get them through the winter on solely feeding?? If not what should I do? and if it is possible exactly when should i feed them each day and at what ratio?
Thanks a lot!
No amount of feed will carry a "weak" hive through winter.
If by chance you have a "light" hive, you may want to place some fondant on the hives.
