    Default How long w/ Sugar Water mixture keep in refrigator?

    I have four gallons of sugar water mixture that has "Honey Be Healthy" added to it that I didn't use to feed bees during the spring. Does anyone have a feel or expierence in how long it will keep in the refrigator before going bad -- that is if it will go bad? I haven't been into bee keeping long enough to pick up on this and don't want to harm the bees by feeding bad poop to them. Anyone experienced in this info -- feedback would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any info. Jim

    Spring is a long time off. I would give it to them for the winter.

    I think he meant that he made the syrup this last spring and is wanting to feed the syrup now. I'm under the impression that it might be a bit aged now.

    Honey Bee Healthy naturally inhibits 'bad stuff.' Some people use it just so that they can keep sugar syrup in room temp. I sometimes do this for a couple of days.
    But in the refrigerator? With HBH?
    Taste it and find out! XD
    My guess would be, in all seriousness, that it would be okay, but that's just a guess. Maybe someone else knows more. What month in spring did you make it up?
