    Default Would you agree with this statement?

    If they can do better than syrup, they will go to it.

    If you agree, than open syrup away from the hive can tell you if you have a flow or not.

    I tried to feed my bees syrup earlier this year in spring and they did not seem to eat any of it. There was of course a bunch of stuff blooming at the time.
    Recently, in the mid to late summer they seem to have changed their minds, and they polish off a quart in a day(each hive).
    Unfortunately the only way to know how your bees are is to test when you do have a flow, to confirm.
    A lot of people say it, when have people ever been wrong? hee hee

    I don't know about syrup but they will completely ignore honey set out if a good flow is on....this I have seen many times.
