I was feeding my bees 2:1 syrup up until the cold hit, and we started having freezing spells with nights down into the 20's and dustings of snow. So I put dry sugar in my hives a'la Mountain Camp. The bees seem to be eating it so far, but I will soon need to refill, as the warmer weather recently has really got them burning through it. Is it worth it to make fondant or simply keep feeding them dry sugar. They are not hauling it off, and seem to actually be eating it, in spite of the recent weather in the high 50's. I am half tempted to give them some sugar syrup, but I know as soon as I do, a cold front will move in.
So Fondant... is it worth the trouble?
