    Search for companies who use bulk sugar. Ask about spilled sugar and damaged totes. Once the sugar is compromised they can’t use it. I have a company giving me sugar...43 drums so far

    I just purchased 150lbs at Walmart for $46.....yep.....

    I went online and looked and found 25lb bags for $7.60. ....that was 0.31/lb......
    I was in walmart and the 25lb bags were $10.45.....I was confused....

    So I ordered and paid online and had to travel to the store in the next town to pick it up but it was worth it.

    A beekeeper I know bought a tote of compromised sugar last year, but unknowingly, it also contained saccharine and aspartame. The source he bought it from didn't bother to mention the artificial sweeteners. Make sure you know what you're getting.

    if anyone has any large commercial bakeries in their area check with them. some sweep spilled sugar off the floor & sell it cheap. it will have some small bits of junk in it but it won't hurt or bother the bees. it can be had for .10-.15 per pound or less.

    We heard reports here that many honeybees will not eat our local Walmart sugar [more than one beekeeper told us].

    Now, we only buy the 50lb bags of granulated sugar from Costco. Never had a problem with it. Usually pay $21 per 50lb bag and the bees absolutely love it in syrup or sugar bricks! Unfortunately, we have not been able to afford the bee blend syrup at our local Mann Lake or Sweetner Products. I heard both of those products work excellent.

    This is the first time I ever tried sugar bricks and I have been totally shocked...we used Lauri's recipe.

    We are discovering many colonies devouring large sugar bricks within 24-48 hours and the results are stunning: Several hives have doubled in size in a 7-10 day period in January! For us, this is unheard of. So we are seeing 10 frame colonies go to 20+ frames within a 10 day period. Now we are concerned about swarming...kinda nice problem to have in January/February!

    Anyway, somehow it appears as if the sugar bricks turned our sleeping queens into machine gunning egg layers...

    Oh, we also kept adding the Mann Lake Ultra recipe patties...but the sugar bricks are what the bees are devouring.

    Tomorrow, all colonies are being trucked to the almond orchards...

    Most Walmart stores in my area have 25# bags at $8.22 each, but some are at $13.16 each. You have to check around. Last fall I stocked up with several 25 pounders from Walmart at around $7.50 each or so. Bees eat it just fine, syrup, cake, or straight, I've never heard of them turning their noses up at Wally brand in this area.
