    Default ap23 and candyboards

    getting ready to make candyboards for overwinter . i use 15 lb sugar, 3 lb white corn syrup, 1 qt water and half teaspoon cream of tartar. i have dry ap 23 feed and was wondering if it would do any good to add some to the recipe and if so, how much would you add?

    Adding dry pollen sub to the candy boards will accomplish 2 things: 1. help bees raise brood. 2. Give small hive beetles a place to reproduce. I don't add it because there are lots of small hive beetles here. Also, I know cream of tartar has been used for many years, but if memory serves me correctly, research has shown that it has harmful effects on bees.
