I'm planning ahead for when I possibly have to start feeding in the winter. Hopefully, I've left enough honey for them to make it through their first winter, but only time will tell. If I have to, do any of you add ascorbic acid to bring down your sugar water's pH to around 4.5 which would be similar to that of honey? If so, what affects, positive or negative, have you seen?
Here's a discussion brought up earlier on BeeSource which got me thinking about this. Please pay close attention to Michael Bush's comments as that's what triggered my question - http://www.beesource.com/forums/show...light=ascorbic
