Need help solving bee problem

I just got a swarm of bees and I'm having a problem. When I got the swarm I put a used in hive frame feeder that had been cleaned out, in the hive and put sugar water in it. My wife had looked up on the internet and it said to put 10 cups of water to 5 pounds of sugar. That's what she made up. It was cool weather for 3 days so I didn't check the hive. When I looked at it, there were dead bees all over. The bees coming out were wobbling and then would fall to the ground. It almost looked like they were drunk, but they were dying. I didn't know if it was the sugar water or the feeder or what. I don't know if any of the bees are going to make it or not. If anyone has any idea of what this could be, please let me know. I would appreciate any help I can get. I'm new at this, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
