Eight cups of sugar, two cups of water. Two tablespoons of white vineger. You need a candy thermometer. Boil till temp reaches 234F while stirring. Then let cool too 200F. Then whisk until it turns white. Then poor onto wax paper. Let it cool. Cut or brake it, then place it in the hives.

You can also put a sheet of plastic in your frames (must be able to handle 200F). Then poor the mix into the frames. After both sides are filled up, place in the hives.
