I'm four combs of honey below where I'd like to be, so I elected to feed them;at the same time, they are fighting off robbers at the front door. So I built a feeder that fits at the back end, that I can reload without going into the hive (it feeds via a piece of pipe).
It takes four days before there is a sign of syrup disappearing!
Does it typically take them that long to discover a feeder in their back pocket? Will they tell the rest of the hive or do they have to discovery it individually? - Mike
