Re: "SugarBags" feeding sugar from the bag.
I am going to try this ‘Johannson brick Method’. End of the season I put ‘bag feeders’ to the weak hives and poured dry sugar on top of the bags in place for insurance. The bees have to move around the sides to get at it.
I have heard of this before but with vinegar (Lauri I think) and thought it needed the vinegar to set up hard. $2 for a 4 lb bag, no fuss, nothing to clean up if they don’t eat it (just pick up the bag).
Most of our days are between 30 and 40 degrees. A cold day here is 20 degrees, almost all of our days are wet. Candy boards were a pain. Candy turned out about half of the time, sometimes it turned brown and I did not want to feed it.
