Re: Feeding and Bee Weight Math
3500 bees to a pound
11mg of sugar a day per bee so close to 1/2 kg per day for 40,000 bees (0.44kg)
2.5 pounds per frame of brood produced
Just got back form an out yard of 2 singles, a double, and 2 nucs that I have put over 100lbs of sugar on in the last mounth......dry as a bone.. pollen but almost no nectar, the drought has been that bad here I have no clue how much I have fed to the main yard....
