I installed two packages and started giving them sugar syrup right away. The first week they were all over it. By the second week they stopped taking it. I guess after getting settled in they found better food elsewhere. I'd feed them until they stop taking it.

Bees are hoarders. They will probably not stop taking it and they will probably swarm before they ever get established. Once they have some capped stores and there is nectar available I would stop feeding them.
