Re: Spraying Bee's w/ Syrup During Installation in Cold Weather
My first year I used the sugar spritz. I have never used it since.
Not a bad experience with it, I just found that the bees just didn't need it.
I installed two packages this year. These bees were HUNGRY and were more concerned with the feeder than they were with me.
I'd pass on the sugar water spray if I were you. Especially if it's cold.
The question is what to do, and the answer, as always, is complicated by a muddle of reason, emotion, and doubt.
