    Default Heating syrup for cold feeding

    How hot is too hot for the bees when i heat up the feed to give my installed packages ? I can use a thermometer if it would be better than guessing.

    I want it room temperature or just a little warmer. My bees do not want syrup below 50 F.
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.

    If it will burn your finger it will burn the bees. If it doesn't burn your finger it won't burn the bees.
