Handy Feeding Tips for best results
- Keep your hives as level as possible, so your bees have easy access to the syrup and you have less waste.
- Ladders or ramps will help protect your bees from drowning.
- It’s best to feed your hives early in the morning, to avoid attracting ‘robber’ bees. Keep a fresh water landing area near the hives – bees get thirsty too!
Dealing with Varroa mites
- If you’ve already fed your hives before treating them for Varroa, you won’t need to remove the feed.
- It’s better not to add feed after you’ve started treatment, to avoid disrupting your hives more than necessary.
