I have taken off all the honey for human consumption and began feeding the hive, particularly as I want the new queen to establish.

I have been using a 2:1 syrup, with a drop of wintergreen and a drop of lemongrass oil, and a tablespoon of honey (the bee's own). Is that ok to do??



I have found mixing easy by using my stand mixer, set on low it can stir the mixture for me and it saves risking overcooked syrup on the stove.
