    Default Going on vacation

    I'm going on vacation in two weeks for two weeks, I've fed my girls around 2 gallons of syrup since Wednesday, their taking it down.
    we're in the fall flow, and I'm worried they will need more syrup when I'm gone in those very important weeks leading up to winter, I don't have anyone to feed while I'm gone.
    I have a Kelly top feeder, wondering if I should put dry sugar in the feeder while I'm gone or just fill up the feeder with 3:1 syrup?

    I would just keep the syrup on them for the next two weeks, and top them off before you leave. Don't go more than 2:1 or you will discover that your syrup has crystallized.

    Agree with BeeCurious - stick with 2:1 and fill it before you leave. They'll be fine.
