Normally, I'd not feed any autumn syrup, but last summer was so bad around here I had to feed syrup (about 24 liters heavy syrup each) and only a matter of weeks later put on fondant, as some were still light..
I wonder how many of you feed sugarsyrup hives full and then let them be over winter. I just wonder your systems. So national.
They have not had any trouble taking the fondant as this is the second lot on each hive.Couple of thoughts here.
Why feed fondant over a cb? So you put it up in the attic away from the cluster which archives what?
I dont think PH is sugesting leaving the "space" but filling in any voids with insualation, + insualation above the crown board.i see no point in creating a supers worth of extra space for them to heat up.
