I am on a public water system that changed this summer from Chlorine to Chloramine.
Last year, I had backfed my bees with sugar syrup using Chlorinated water and I didn't notice any effect.
But this year, I am seeing major collapses of my bees in various beeyards and I have been feeding my bees major amounts of sugar syrup in order to get them ready for winter and I was using Chloramine treated water.
Is Chloramine toxic to bees as it is for fish. How does one neutralize the Chloramine. I am just sick knowing that my hives are extremely weak and that I might have indirectly caused this.
