Re: Why the heck won't they gain weight (after ALOT of feeding).
I have found when using jar feeders with holes poked in the lids, hole size can make a huge difference in syrup use. Larger holes allow for faster consumption and it gets stored. Smaller holes slow consumption and more gets used for feeding brood.
I had to check for propolis in the holes I'd poked in the jar lids every fill up.
Hey kilo, I always thought the number of hfcs designated the percent of sugar content that was fructose, not total sugar percentage. I though hfcs 55 was 78% sugar, but 55% of it was fructose with the rest mostly glucose.
Hindsight is 20/10, not 20/20...
After the fact, I always know what didn't work.
