    @ Hi Luther!
    You and I have never met but we have emailed a couple of times re solar. I am down in Mayhill, we started a local group called “Southern New Mexico Beekeeper” I hope that you will join us. Look for us under the “Groups” section on the main page. https://www.nmbeekeepers.org/ 
    Do you still have some used thermal panels?

    @ I’d wait until the time comes to make that decision.  The bees may tell you what to do buy their actions (like not using your syrup).  When you have multiple hives in the same location there is some risk in feeding in that it may promote robbing especially if there is no nectar flow at the time.  Reducing the entrance size down so only one or tw…[Read more]
