Ok Just wondering, does everyone feed?
Not everyone feeds. There are two camps of thought. One is to leave the bees enough honey to make it thru the winter on their own, and only feed those bees that do not have enough. The other camp is to take as much honey as possible and feed back sugar to the bees for their survival. The basis for this is purely econimical. The price of honey is substantially more than honey, so one can steal all the honey, buy sugar to feed, and still make a profit.
What if you leave lots of honey do you still feed?
Nope, feral hives survive just fine on their own
