feeding bees

Am switching to 2:1 syrup mix = 2 c sugar to 1 pint water, per the info in the article noted below

up until now, have been doing a 1:1 mix.  as our pollen sources are almost completely gone, will give them a chance to boost their winter preparedness especially since we had frost today.   yes it was light frost, BUT it is 9 days BEFORE first frost date, so what kind of a winter are we going to have?!?!?!?!
