This will be my first year in keeping bees. I am set up and ready, they will be here in April. For roughly 3 yrs I have been reading (off and on) and studying about the subject basically to find out is this something I want to do.
During this time everything I have read "feed them sugar water". Recently I have been reading the opposite! Some have said this is like feeding your children Twinkies and cupcakes day and night, which I do not want! So, what do I feed a new colony? Pollen patties? sugar water?
Thanks a lot for any advice,
