Hey fellow beeks.
I have a friend who caught a small, secondary swarm a while back. He ran in to some health issues and didn't do much with it. He never fed it, and it doesn't have a lot of comb drawn out well. The queen seems to want to lay well, but with a smaller population and not much drawn comb, she doesn't really have much space to lay.
I am going to start feeding them, but was debating whether to use 1:1 or 2:1 syrup, since it is late in the year. I am also going to give them a pollen patty. Once they are settled and have an ok population of workers, I also thought I would supplement their population with a frame of brood from two of my strong colonies.
