Re: Winter Prep and Sugar Bricks
I used purple foam board in my hives with no issues...bees didn't touch it.
Last year I insulated and quilt boxed most of my hives. Some I didn't get around to kitting out. All were offered syrup in the fall...not all took it. All were offered a thin sugar block after Xmas...some ate it, some didn't. The pampered hives did no better or worse than those left to be bees with apparently adequate feed stores. Go figure.
