Hello everyone,


I'm curious how long sugar syrup will last in my hive after I've removed the feeder.

How long will the cells remain filled with sugar syrup until they are exhausted and replaced with real honey?

Thanks!

That's entirely dependent on the needs of the hive.  If I've got it in supers count on them not using it during the year.  I won't put syrup on them if there a super on to avoid just that problem.

I removed the feeder about a month ago.
