To Feed or not to Feed, That is the Question
We are having a full week of warm weather here in Indiana this week(high 50's). My bees are very active, and I have been feeding some of my weaker hives and NUCs. The hives are taking in quite a bit, about 1 1/2 pints of syrup/day from an outside feeder. Is it safe feeding them? Will this force the queen into laying again? My thinking was that if I feed now while its warm then they won't use their honey stores. Their activity looks like early April right now.
