okay, this is gonna sound really weird...but I eat a lot of canned fruit. It all has heavy sugar syrup that's left after I eat all the fruit...I was thinking about feeding this to the bees...they've got plenty of opportunities to cleanse, pretty much every day. any reason I shouldn't do this?
Hi Branman: Well, of course we know they'll take the stuff. If it was me (but it isn't) and if I had that much syrup left from canned fruit (which I don't) I'd put some bees in a nuc and feed it to them just to see what would happen and when I did find out for certain, I'd let everyone know.
