I have been using a FBM's hive top feeders and feeding the two hives and noticed that the stronger hive will do 1 gallon in a little over a day. Don's cage is stuffed with bees.

The weaker hive has a good start from a July split but not the bee volume. In the same 1 gallon type feeder not nearly as many bees attack the 1 to 1 sugar solution and after 3-4 days the solution gets darker and just a few bees working it.

Think it is fermenting, going bad, or the 1/8 mesh is causing the problem?

On hive top feeders does anyone use Don's mix to feed the beetles that tend to stay up there?
