Emergency late summer/pre-fall bloom feeding

Please check your bees to determine if they required feeding.  In some locations there are NO flowers in bloom and bees are extremely low on stores.  Several individuals have told me that their bees are on the verge of starving.  If  your bees require feeding, use only pure table sugar prepared by mixing in the ratio of 1 pound of sugar plus 1 pint of water.  Feeding pollen substitute may also be required.

Hopefully, fall flowers will begin to bloom shortly and provide our bees with their required winter stores.
