3 packages will be shipped April 3 and arrive around April 5 alittle late for Florida, but alot will be blooming, and with stimulative feeding they will draw out the foundation fairly quickly. I have about 15 lbs of goldenrod honey that I was intending to feed back to the hives ( from a cut out I did earlier this winter ) seemed like a good idea any other thoughts aside from also getting patties that are medicated for foul brood, and nosemia ( probably spelt wrong ) and a few mite pads ( formic acid pads are susposed to be deadly to vorroa mites even chases SHB ). :thumbsup:

You might want to feed light sugar syrup to stimulate comb building and brood rearing. It is not a good idea to add the stresser of antibiotics to a hive that is not infected. Come to the Florida Bee College in St Augustine (Marineland) in March and learn more about IPM BMP and stress factors in bee management.
