making winter bees into summer bees
In another thread the comment was made
"(Offer syrup in august to avoid making winter bees into summer bees)"
I have not heard this phrase before, have I missed something?
I feed light hives through the dearth, & in the fall as insurance for winter survival.
The bees work the blooms till it gets too cold, or the blooms go away. So feeding inappropriatly messes up the bees?
( other than moisture in the hive, etc)
Thanks ... ce
Started summer of 2013, just another new guy, tinkering with bees.
