This will be our first year at keeping bees.
Is there any advice relating to sugar types to use in feeding and drawing foundation?
Our new hives are starting from nucs and will have 6 deep frames of undrawn foundation. I plan on top feeding. Are there advantages or disadvantages to using fructose over standard granulated sugar or brown sugar for the syrup? What is best ratio for startup in spring to draw comb?
