I installed my first package of bees today. Everything I've read has said to use a 1:1 ratio for spring syrup...EXCEPT for the directions that came with the bottle of Fumidil I bought - that said 2:1 for new packaged bees. So I fed them 2:1 syrup.
What could go wrong?
Why is 1:1 recommended for spring?
Wouldn't the higher sugar content help the bees draw out the foundation faster?
