When I bought my friends hive and equipment earlier this month, along with it came 2 gallons of 1 to 1 sugar water he had mixed up in January or February. Both containers are milky looking. There is no odor to either one by opening them up. One of them has a cloud like stringy strand of something floating around.
I thought I'd feed them just to use them up before our blooming season starts but not if there's a chance they will be bad for the bees. If they are spoiled, will the bees feed on them at all?
