Fall Season- Sept-Oct-Nov

2:1 this formula is a very heavy syrup, it is made using two parts of sugar to one part of water. For example, 2 pound of sugar to 1 pound of water. This is used in fall or early winter as a honey substitute to feed your bees. The bees should add weight and will use these stores throughout winter.

Winter Season- Dec-Jan-Feb

Simple syrup may not be the best ootion for winter feeding, as it can freeze.
It is recommended to make candy boards for winter feeding.

Candy Board Recipe:
15-16 lb. of sugar
3 cups water
1 tbsp. plain white vinegar
1 Pollen patty (optional)
