Jury Still Out On Homemade Honey Bee Healthy

I made a batch of homemade HBH per the recipe described in this post, added a tablespoon to a gallon of syrup, and put it out for open feeding, alongside some bags full of bee tea (leaving out the onion) the girls had already found.  The HBH bag was largely left alone while interest in the bee tea remained robust.

Today I went up to the roof and found a small posse of bees on the HBH bag, but still not the frenzy I continued to witness on the tea.

So I wanted to make the challenge fair.  I made two bags of bee tea into one which I added a couple of teaspoons of the HBH.  If one outsells the other, I will have a data point.

Stay tuned.
