Dry Sugar Feeding


#1

Has anyone ever just placed a 5lb sugar bag on top of their hives and let the bees eat through the bag? Was wondering if that would work versus using newspaper.


#2

One sheet of newspaper is much easier for them to chew through than the bag on a bag of sugar… I have done it, but it takes the bees a bit to get into it. I would use the newspaper.

Ok thanks for the info. Tried one where a poked a bunch of holes in it and slit open the top just to experiment.


#4

Holes would help. Getting it wet helps get some sugar into the paper which incites them to chew through it.
