I just reread the forum rules and feeding seems to be an ok topic to discuss??? Hope this post is ok.
I am getting a package of bees from Sam Comfort this spring. All his bees are small cell/treatment free/no supplemental feeding. Since I am getting a package, not a nuc, should I feed or let them be?? Also, I have empty comb that I could put in from my other hive to help them out. Should I even do this? My other bees are not small cell. Would this screw things up? Any guidance is appreciated!
Also, ,my other hive is a 2013 package from Georgia that requeened 3 or 4 times. They have been doing wonderfully over harsh PA winter and seem to tolerate mites. Hoping they turn out to be a good hive with good genetics.
