How do I feed your dry bee food in winter? I plan on making a sugar tray for some hives but not all.
What we recommend is that you can use as a pattie form, or sprinkle into a sugar try or you can sprinkle it onto the inner cover.
Can the dry bee feed be made into the balls as described in the instructions and be used instead of fondant? Or do you recommend fondant, and if so how much do I add to a 4lb recipe?
Hi yes the mix can be formed into balls just add more or less dry powder or liquid to make the desired consistency. We recommend dry feed vs fondant for nutritional purposes.

The container says I can "mix with heavey syrup to make patties." What is the sugar to water ratio for "heavy" syrup?
Hi a heavy syrup would be 2 parts sugar to 1 part water by weight. So for example 2 lbs of sugar to 1 lb of water. Like a simple syrup but thicker.
