Feeding bees fondant

During Winter months it is not possible to feed them sugar solution as it is too cold for them to fly and get rid of the watery waste.

Instead they are fed fondant. This is like icing sugar and the bees can eat this whils staying in their.

Recently, it has been very warm where I live and the bees have been very active and flying a lot. This means they need planty of fondant to give them the energy they need, 

I try to put the fondant as close as posssible to the bees, so they don’t have far to go to ffed when it is clold and they mainly stay in their cluster.
