Replied by Ronald H. Bartemy Jr. on topic Fall Feeding
To late to feed with the weather so cold ,however I feed based on weight of the hive
I use two deeps and one med by the end of Sept I want a weight of about 150 lbs 165 is better
So say I have a hive at 140 I will put two or three gal cans 2/1 syrup on top each can will increase
The weight of the hive 10 lbs per can so two cans on a reweight will give me a hive of 160 lbs .
This has worked for a long time .
I don't like feeding but I won't let my bees starve to death.
Three things for sure that kill bees is starving,varroa mites,and moisture
Varroa should be top of the list
Just my two cents
