    Question

    I am really new to beekeeping and I was wondering how long you should feed a new five frame nuc? Also have any of you had any experience with "Honey B Healthy"? It was recommended to me and I wonder if anyone else is using it?

    I usually feed new hives until they loose interest in the syrup or they have their comb built out. My feeling is that it takes alot of honey, nectar, or syrup to build all of the comb out. Why not help them as much as possible.

    I have never used Honey B Health, so I can not comment.

    Good Luck,
    Scott
