I have two hives, one is feeding on a quart of 2:1 mix every day. The other hive, right next to it, and what I also believe to be a relatively strong hive, is barely taking an ounce a day it seems. Is there any reason I should be concerned? Something I can do to make them eat? I am concerned because these are both five frame double high medium nucs that were started late in the season and I am certain they do NOT have enough stores to make it through our winter here in southern New York.
Please, if anyone has suggestions it would be helpful.
Appreciate any feedback.
