Hi, I hope everyone is doing well and also their bees. I have some extracted honey from last year and I would like to feed it back to my bees. Would I have to dilute the honey with water, If so what would the ratio be? Thanks

I'm not a 100% sure but I do not think you have to mix it with water ... just be carefull you do' not set off robbing .. keep it on top inside of the hive and close all the top entrances and cut the main floor entrence to a inch so they can defend it ..

no need to dilute the honey if still in liquid state, just feed it as it is, as previously stated avoid dribbling it around or otherwise exposing it to your other colonies or robbing will start and that you don't want. internal feeders are the best for that purpose.
