Trying to learn, looking for pros and cons on all my options...
Got my 2 Nucs Mid January and started open feeding with a 1:1 mix. Moved them to their hive boxes on February 8th and continued with the 1:1 mix via an internal feeder. As I've documented in another thread, Bravo Hive has no interest in taking it. I've kept offering it because I'm still feeding Alpha hive, so I've kept them in the rotation. (Bravo hive is a whole different story :))
Alpha hive on the other hand is probably drinking it at the rate of a quart every two days, or very close to that rate. Alpha seems to be booming and developing a lot quicker than Bravo. I've running 8 frame medium equipment and have added a second box to Alpha. So....things appear to be going great with it.
Here's my confusion, It seems like everything I had read and heard was in aggrement that once you start feeding them sugar syrup, you continue until they stop taking it, therefore, that was my plan.
However, I've read in a number of threads recently about problems with over feeding, when to stop feeding, etc. etc.
So, should I continue to feed, or not? If so, for how long? Till they stop taking it? Or at some other point in time???
Any and all input appreciated. :)
