I entered beekeeping on 7/2 of this year with a tbh. I've been feeding constantly since then and the bees seem to be doing well. I have seven combs of mostly brood with babies coming out of the cells. I have fed about a quart of 1:1 syrup every day and they eat it all. Since I started from scratch so late in the season, I want the bees to build up as fast as possible. I've read everything I can find on feeding and have read to feed them as much as they want, all the time. Or, feed them a little every few days to stimulate comb building. Is there a correct answer? Is it somewhere in between? Can I feed them enough to mess them up? I don't care about anything but getting them to survive the winter. Can anybody tell me how much/often to feed? Thanks.
