Re: Getting my first bees soon!
one thing i thought that was important was making note of how many top bars should be in there to start with....
10 without a feeder and about 15-16 bars to start with depending on the size of the feeder.
i also made a 2:1 sugar syrup for the feeders....i used a new paint brush and dipped it into the solution and brushed on the wire package.....
my bees are on their 4th day and seem to be doing well and loving all the blossoms ...cherry, plum, lilac, and crab apple and mackintosh apple oh and lots of dandelions...i've not mowed the lawn and figured keeping the dandelions out would be a nice treat for them...and so far it looks that way.
