    Is it a really bad idea to use Karo syrup for bee food for feeding now? I just ran out of cane sugar and happen to have a bottle I have stored for awhile and I really dont use it for anything else. If so should I dilute it?

    Karo has other ingredience in it that is not good for bees not to mention its expensive. Is the golden rod blooming in your area the fall flow should be on right about now. You may not have to feed

    You can feed it to them, but make sure they have a clear path to the outhouse. They will have to get there quick.
