Got up this morning and mixed up a sugar syrup feed for the bees in hive No. 2. I added 5Kg of granulated refined sugar to about 3 litres of hot water and mixed with the Kenwood Chef whilst I had a cup of tea. When I got to the apiary I removed the super from the hive and moved the crown board down over the brood box. I placed one of our jumbo feeders on top of that and poured the entire mix in. The bees should take that down in a few days.
Took one of our supers from storage and placed on top of the existing super. The existing super was jam-packed with bees this morning which demonstrated the need to get another super on top.
In theory I should have lifted the existing super and added the new one underneath – but a bit of theory testing doesn’t do too much hard every now and then!
