Going through the Sugar Water!!!

This morning (Thursday) I went to the farm to fill the bee feeders, as Dad had told me they were dry yesterday.  I arrived at the farm about 5:30am and filled both half gallon feeders with almost 2 pounds of sugar and water.  I then examined the hives and video taped myself (see video below).  However, later this afternoon I received a call from Dad who said the West hive feeder was empty already and the other one had about an inch or so left!  What?!?!  In one day the west hive went through a half gallon of sugar water?!?!  We were in the area this evening and stopped by to fill them both.  Aaron suited up to retrieve and replace the jars.
