Late September Open Feeding of Bees

A short film of the bees yard activity when open feeding honeybees.  Honey from structural removals is fed back to the honeybees.  This helps ensure that each hive in the apiary has enough food stores to make it through the winter.  When there is no natural nectar flow, open feeding can be used to make sure the bees (a) have enough food, and (b) make the bees think there is a nectar flow, so they will continue to build fresh comb on the frames.
