This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

I am thinking about feeding.

I am getting ready to feed. I have some High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) from last fall to use up.
In the spring though it is important to give the bees fructose and sucrose.
The hive will be building up and the bees need proper nutrition. HFCS and 1:1 sugar water mixed together will provide the critical nutrition for proper bee development.
This mixture is good for spring development. In the fall, straight HFCS will do.
