Re: Feeding syrup to new packages when they already have capped honey
Personally it all would depend on how much honey I was placing back on the hive, and what nectar source was available. I am facing the same issue this spring. I am not planning to feed, but the dandelions should be blooming before I get my packages and I have honey and drawn comb for them. If I need to I will feed sugar.
