it's probably obvious, but I better ask. I recently did a cut-out. the bees seem to be taking to the new hive nicely.

I have a bowl with several large wax balls in it(ones I crushed to get honey in the past) when I did the cut-out, there was no capped honey due to the fact the bees had only been there for 1 week....but there was lots of uncapped honey...clear as water. well, I squeezed all this out into a large bucket...prolly 1/2 gallon.....and I've been pouring it over the wax balls feeding it back to the bees.....

isn't this better than feeding the 1:1 sugar water, since I have it?:scratch:

There are a couple of things that I'm going to assume about the situation; that the only the cut out bees have access to the nectar and they were disease free. There should be no problem feeding them the nectar they already collected, but I would caution against feeding it to any other hives, just to be on the safe side.
