I have run out all my 2:1 (except what's in the feeders now) and I'm off to the store to pick up another 25 pounds of sugar. It is a beautiful day today, sunny, mid 50's, the bees are flying, dandelion, chickweed, hen bit all starting to bloom but.....forecast is a few more ugly cold snaps and snow is a posibility always. They say about the weather in Georgia this time of year "if you don't like it: wait 5 minutes and it'll change" I have read to feed 1:1 in spring..so I wonder is it to soon to make the switch or does it matter, or should I even be feeding at all (they have some stores now..maybe 2-3 deep frames worth total per hive..it's spread around) Thanks for your response!

Well, you're on you way already. I'd be mixing up 1:1. They'll be using it before storing it pretty soon if they're not already.

It seems early, but not sure in Georgia. Just remember if you start feeding then you have to keep feeding till the nectar flows.
