Sugar syrup is an excellent supplemental feed, especially for newly established hives!

Pick up syrup so you are ready to go

How to Feed Sugar Syrup:

Spring Feeding: Create a 1:1 syrup using 1 lb. sugar to 1lb. water (2 cups).

Fall Feeding: Make a 2:1 syrup using 2 lb. sugar per 1 lb. of water (2 cups).

Feeding Notes:

  • When making syrup, water must be very hot (not boiling) to dissolve sugar
  • Do not feed sugar syrup during cold weather when bees are not able to take cleansing flights
  • Do not feed sugar syrup until it is warm enough for bees to fly regularly. If the weather is still too cold, feed winter patties. Pollen patties are used to stimulate build-up of hives in anticipation of the spring flow, but don’t feed them too early because pollen supplements will cause rapid expansion, and there may not be enough bees to keep the brood warm.
