This feeding thing has me confused!
Bees get in summer enough food from nature. Most important is pollen because small colony can rear new brood.
Sugar has only energy. It has no stimulating meaning in a small hive. It only blocks the valubale cells.
Summer itself inspire the bees that they go all the time on their upper limits.
"they draw fast foundations" has no meaning because brood cycle is long. It is better to count as 4 weeks that it has meaning.
In Britain they are mad. They feed the whole winter and disturb the winter sleep.
They think that if they feed 3-fold more expencive sugar to bees, hives are much more better than with usual sugar.
7 years I have written in this from that don't feed you package bees for stimulation. It helps nothing.
Yes, there is a barrier in undestanding.
I started nucs at the second half of May. They had a queen and 3 frames. Now some of those hives have 5 boxes and they have 2-3 medium boxes full of honey.
I know how to handle bees. That is not a point.
