    Hi ronsin:

    Could you refresh my memory :oops: as per candy recipe? Was this a link I provided for fondant? Even fondant will get hard over time but the bees can still make use of it.

    what is wrong with solid candy?

    rock candy I am quite certain the bees will consume.

    thanks for your replies guys .will go ahead and feed hard candy to bees . over here in uk everyone insists that candy should be soft quoting that bees need to be able to access water to dilute hard candy which is a problem when weather is cold. howeverif hard candy is good enough for youguys its good enough for me thanks again
