Again, this is my first year and have 3 hives and have been feeding my hives sugar syrup since spring. I was told to keep feeding them syrup and they will let you know when to stop feeding them when they stop taking it, well, mine never really stopped. Two of my hives are doing great, one is a package and the other is a nuc with about 10 frames full of honey each and they are busy and doing great. My question is, is the honey that they produced sugar syrup honey or the real thing? I did take a couple frames and the honey turned out to be really light in color. What do you think, real honey or not?
