I checked on my hives and did the "heft" test and found that two of my hives are light. I am not surprised because one of them is the hive I split - THEN it swarmed twice on me. The other was a new but strong hive, but I think it may have swarmed & I didn't see it. Anyway -they are light. I have been feeding 2:1 sugar:water - is this the correct mix for this time of year? It has been cold here, but we have had some warm 60 degree days and I know the bees will break their cluster to eat. I put 2 gallons of 2:1 on them Friday, and I had already put 2 gallons on all my hives with the nosema mixture for their fall dose the week before that. Do I just feed any day that I know they will break their cluster to eat? AND is the 2:1 correct?
