Feeding the Ferals

Updated: Jan 23, 2019

We went to check on our feral colony today and they appear to be settling down ok. The good news is that we saw pollen being brought into the hive and that's a firm indication they are feeding brood.

What they need now is a good feed to stimulate them and build up some stores and we gave them their first feed today.

That'll keep them going for a few days until I come back to top it up for them. I'll keep feeding them this sugar syrup until they stop taking it down.
