Re: Will a little 2 to 1 syrup when it's cold hurt
Good advice from our Canadian friend, I will add that for now I think it would be best to feed granulated sugar on the inner cover or perhaps the frame tops as back up feed and to keep a close eye on the stores, feeding syrup would be best done in the early spring months of February, March and April which will also stimulate brood rearing, this early spring feeding will place a demand on pollen stores as well, so feeding a pollen substitute should accompany the syrup. When you begin with early feeding you will need to continue until a nectar flow begins.
