Re: Filling comb with sugar syrup.
If you put the frames into a tub of thick sugar water and let the cells fill up, they won't. You'd think they would, but they don't. You have to rain the syrup down onto the cells, otherwise surface tension keeps the cells from gaining much syrup at all.
How would you dry the water out of them?
When were you going to use them?
There are better, more practical and convenient, ways to feed. I would bother doing this.
