More syrup for the bees

posted in Our Hives |

Although it was raining this morning I distributed the syrup that Amanda had prepared. It was chilly and hardly any bees were visible until I eased the Boardman feeder out of the entrance. A few dozen bees ventured out onto the “porch” while I filled the feeder. None were stirred to come after me, fortunately, for I was just wearing my rain jacket which is hardly bee-proof!

    Have you used the hive top polystyrene feeders?

    I used the baggie method with slits inside a shim and below the inner cover. My problem is in being unable to restock the syrup unless the weather gets warm enough to open.

    Do you have a bee keeping organization nearby?

    Do you have a bee keeper who is helping you?
