Re: Feeding cell building colonies.
The recommendation for a regular "light syrup" is a good one if there is little or no honey flow in progress, we supplement an average of 1 to 2 pounds of syrup per day. Bees build the best cells during a light build up flow, a heavier flow (or too much heavy syrup) may just end up burying your cells in comb honey. It's also a good idea to keep a frame of foundation in each builder to keep the new comb building focused somewhere away from the cells.
