My hive died in December, leaving me with five or more bars of honey. I figured the new package would need something to eat. However, when the package is installed, they will be concentrating on building brood comb and raising brood, which means they will want syup, not honey. Should I leave the honey in the hive or yank it, knowing I'm going to be feeding like mad? - Mike

I very much doubt bees would rather have syrup than honey for raising brood. What do they eat if they're living in a dead tree somewhere during spring buildup?
