It looks as if my bees have stopped taking the sugar water.  I have put on the second deep and was wondering if I should just pull the sugar water or leave it on another week, I last filled it on Friday.  I have a bunch of brood on 6 out of 10 frames and the other 4 frames are almost completlly drawn out (10th frame just has one side to go)

Brian's right. Once the 2nd deep has been mostly drawn out, stop feeding and add supers.

I am so sorry I didn't make myself clear, but that was the bottom deep.  In the top they have only started to draw out the comb on 2 frames.

Then keep feeding...  I would continue until comb building is almost done in the second deep.
