I checked the feeder late yesterday. The bees were all over the syrup. If they stay on it i'll continue to give it to them.
I'll give Nuc1 & 2 a pint each of syrup today as well. Nuc 1 has no brood at all and Nuc 2 has little larva left. Either way the bees don't need as much food as a colony with tons of brood. I noticed the bees in Nuc 1 aren't flying as much as the 2 nucs with larva. When i looked in Nuc 1 the other day i didn't see much in the way of stores either. I want to make sure there are enough stores in the hive when the Queen starts laying again. Though I wont be adding pollen patties. They don't take to patties when there is real pollen available. So i wont waste money on that.
