Thanks to great responses in this forum, I took suggestion from Konrad to put out sugar water close to hive at mix of 1:1 by volume. It is in dish with popsicle stick floats. I even placed yellow flower with idea color might attract the bees. (???) But after 4 or 5 days I have not seen any takers. Any thoughts?

Likely they are finding some other nectar source. They will work the source they consider the best first.

Tarheit's right. They might be finding another source right now. I've been feeding some of my hives to get em started up, but I put the jar with feeder at the entrance at night to discourage robbing. Sometimes they take the sugar water quicker than other times. I'm about through with feeding I think.
