Re: Filling comb with sugar water & hive wrapping/candy board question
I have filled empty comb (HSC) with sugar syrup in the past. I look at it as strictly an emergency application. The problem is that when it becomes too cold for them to process syrup it leaves too much moisture inside the hive. Moisture kills bees. Normally candy boards are placed on hives in late winter or very early spring to prevent starvation at a criticle time.
