Around these parts I'm told blackberry is the main flow. Near my hive the blackberries are just starting so my theory is that any eggs laid today probably won't become foragers in time and may end up being a burden if there are too many and nothing to feed on. I'd like to stop feeding but they barely have any stores right now and I'd like to continue to feed until I see some capped honey (or syrup). Will feeding 2:1 vs 1:1 slow brood rearing? How much do they need to live and raise brood day to day? Current population seems 2-3x what I started with (a 3lb package) roughly 9 top bars worth of comb, mostly brood.
