I've been feeding one of my two hives for several weeks now. They have been taking it down faster than I can get it in the feeder. Today I came upon a sugar sale at Target. A 5# bag is $1.98. The sale is good until 9/25. That's the best price I have seen thus far. Aldi's was up to $2.75 for 5#. I don't know if that is only good in this area, or nation wide. It's worth checking out the sale ad online. Let you fingers do the walking!
