    Anyone have an opinion as to whether Thymolated Syrup would interfere with spring brood production? I have about 15 gallons of 2:1 leftover from fall and would like to dilute it and feed for spring buildup.

    good question.

    ahh just bring it down here Flyman and we can test it out.

    weather is clearing here, hopefully tomorrow I can get thru a hive or so.

    Happy to bring a gallon or two.....maybe a bottle of mead also. Weather pretty nice today, mid fifties. All bees flying and looking for something to do. Probably going to look inside a few tomorrow myself. Since they have basically not been flying for over a week, I took the opportunity to move a few about 30 feet and reorganize the homeyard. They took right away to their new place. Didn't see any drift back....good time to move em.

    Tom:
    Bring the mead and we will discuss the issue. Bring two bottles and we can conspire on how to loot England.

    Did you look at the tread An Abstract from Apidologies?
