We're in the middle of a drought along with over half the US and don't have any nectar coming in. I have a few hives that are light, probably too light to get through winter. Goldenrod is going to start blooming in the next week or three. Threw a top feeder on a few hives and gave them each a gallon of 1:1 syrup. No I have myself worried that they're going to backfill the broodnest and I'm going to miss out on the last round(s) of broodrearing before winter sets in. Did I screw up? I was hoping that the syrup would encourage them to finish drawing the frames they already started on be able to take advantage of the goldenrod flow.
