March 24th: I Decided to Feed the SLV Hive

I decided to feed the bees.  I put a Brood Patty (15% pollen, that I got from Murdoch’s) on top of the frames of the top box.  I also added a top feeder with a 1:1 sugar syrup mix.  I used distilled water and organic cane sugar.  I also added dissolved ascorbic acid to lower the pH to closer to that of honey (4.0).
