Juat starting to open. The bees are already checking it out.
The bees love it
From my limited experience, 2.5 gal from a shallow super seems VERY good.
Benton, thanks for the tip about the yellowjackets. I'll watch out for them.
I wondered if I should try to wet the area down and try to dilute or wash away the syurp. I decided to let it alone. I...
I knocked over a gal of syrup today and broke my jar. Syrup spilled right in front of the split that I had it on. I already had the entrance reduced down to 3". I went back out and looked at it about...
