6 to 8 Langstroth jumbos, a few Langstroth and National nucs.
As I feed when treating with Apiguard, I don't see why not as long as no honey supers..

If you have a hive that is very low on stores, then feeding is a must. I'm using Apiguard and both of my hives have had 2 lts of 2:1 syrup.

No one wants a dead hive,even if it has little varroa. bee-smillie
