Argument for using sucrose based bee feeds.

The secretary of another district forwarded this and I thought readers might be interested.  The fondant recently purchased by Grantham Beekeepers is of course sucrose based, which is what this paper is saying gives the best results.  

 Sorry the images aren't very can see the report in it's entirety here.

I fed my bees yesterday with the fondant bought by Grantham Beekeepers to be purchased by it's members if they wish. Although the weather was dry it was quite cold and VERY windy so I enlisted the help of my youngest nephew (13) and we were in and out very quick having fed all 3 hives within 2 minutes. Due to the weather I didn't get chance to photograph the event but I will be checking on them in about a week so weather permitting I will be able to get a few quick photos then!!
