how far ahead can you make 1 to 1 syrup and keep it. I just installed my packages and was told I must go to California for two weeks on the 17th. My sons said they would feed the bees. 2 hives just started

I've put sugar water mix in a jar. Kept it in the pantry for 3 weeks before.

Make sure the jar is clean! put the sugar water in when it's still warm/hot. Then put the top on.If the jar has built pressure or smells bad when you open it don't use it.
