How much 1:1 syrup does a newly installed 3# package of bees consume per day? I know the answer is not one number, but a range of numbers, depending on weather, other forage available, e.t.c. Still, can anyone give me the idea of the mean and standard deviation? By my estimate, 95% of the bees that came in the packages are still alive. The weather is consistently highs in the 50s/60s, lows somewhere in the 30s, so they cluster every night. Today is a gorgeous sunny day, but the next three days in a row will be rainy. I will feed them today (Wednesday) and I'd like the syrup to last til Sunday. With those things in mind, I just wanted to make a rough estimate of how much syrup I should give them so they don't run out, but that it also doesn't stagnate. Thanks very much.
