I was talking at the farmers market today. someone who has had bees a long time, but who doesn.t work them now, just keeps them for pollination and lets them fend for themselves, said I must leave a full super of honey for the bees for the winter when I take the honey. I had the idea that there was adequate room in the large brood supers to get them through the winter in a place like this where the winters are short , even if not, wouldnt't it be better to feed syrup and rob the honey to sell. I thought I would throw it out here, cause have more respect for your opinions than anyone I have talked to around here. how do you judge, I guess you would look at their stored honey on the inspections and only feed when it is low or just feed anyway?
