I retrieved honey and bees from a water meter yesterday and am crushing and straining the honey. I have a moderately weak hive I have been feeding 2:1 syrup. Should I put the leavings from the c & s on top of the inner cover for them to use?
The reason I ask is it seems I have read that you should not feed your bees honey that is not from their own hive. I have wondered why you should not do this, but the leavings are from another hive, though it is from the same general area.
