okay, i'm a little confused about ratios and mixing the syrup. 2:1 = 2 parts sugar 1 part water , 1:1 is 1 part sugar 1 part water...right? in the how to keep bees book from walter t kelly co. it says to mix 20lbs sugar to 1 gallon of water.....what ratio is this?.........i've always hated math the above recipe is what i mixed and thought i had it mixed good but i checked the feeders today and it seems i didn't have it mixed good enough.... some sugar is setteling to the bottom and caking up cutting off the flow. i am trying to use chick waterers both a quart jar and a gallon waterer setting on top of the inner cover with empty hive bodies enclosing the feeders. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
