Hey everyone, there are tons of ways that folks feed bees. Sugar water in my opinion, is the worst ever. Sugar water is just crap and I avoid it at all costs, it really isn't good for bees either. What we do with our Hives is once we have harvested and spun the honey we simply put the frames back next to or close to the hives and let them have a delicious feast which lasts for days.
This is a fantastic idea as tons of wax remains which they harvest, pollen also in many of the comb compartments, honey and propolis all which they re-harvest and reuse!
I recently took these pics which we spun as well as put next to the hives, the bees really go totally nuts for this and the cool thing is once clean about a week later, we simply put back in the hives for the bees to re-work and refill. Just Epic, Bee-Keeping truly is incredible.
Be sure to stay tuned for more of my epic bee-keeping adventures.
Have a super cool week.
