Will bees cap sugar syrup?

I have been feeding my two packages for a little over three weeks now. They seem to have slowed down taking the syrup. Currently there are only four or five bees around the feeders unlike the first week when there were 50+. When I last inspected on Sat. I saw very nice brood pattern on 7 frames and even some new bees. 2.5 frames still not drawn out. In the corner of the frames there were white cappings over what I can only guess is sugar syrup unless there is a slight honey flow on.

Thanks
