Most of my 5 hives went into winter light. I fed when warm enough and put dry sugar above the clusters as added measure.
I checked hives briefly this weekend (temp about 60 degrees) to check health. All had good amount of brood. VERY strong numbers, brood already in lower chambers, brood on 90% of frames in deep and medium above. Little stores.
Should I continue feeding. I think most do not have enough stores to rear this brood. I don't want them to starve, but don't want to encourage anymore unatural "flows" to induce brood if they shouldn't be this full yet.
Feed or not to feed?
