have been feeding my 2 package colonies since intalling early June. Using division board feeders and checking ~ weekly. My question is what do they do when / if they run out of syrup between checks? I do see them bringing in lots of pollen and as I understand that roughly translates to about the same amount of nectar. Started them on Pierco and I think they are putting all their energy into drawing comb, but I am getting a little nervous that they seem to have very little honey stored that could get them through the few days when the feeders might go dry. I am getting ready to install miller type feeders but my goal is to try and disturb them less rather than more. As the weather here warms they are using the syrup faster...
Thanks - your thoughts are appreciated!
