- Too many - but not nearly enough
I know many beekeepers (with multitudes of hives) who feed nothing but fondant, I know many more beekeepers who supplementary feed fondant - especially emergency late winter feeding.if I put any type of sugar fondant ex in a colony they will leave. ( I don’t cut my queens wings)
Yet to hear one saying that their bees have absconded due to a piece of fondant in the hive.
I'm guessing you didn't treat your bees and they just died out.
