How do you know when to stop feeding sugar water?
I've been feeding sugar water/ honeybee healthy to my bees since January and they are doing very well, even though I lost 2 of 6 hives this winter. I just wanted to know when we stop feeding them sugar water and pollen patties? I/ve heard something at one of our bee meetings about how if you feed them sugar water too long then you only get it put back in the hive instead of honey. I am confused and want to make sure since things are really starting to bloom here in the foothills of NC.
