Hello, a first-year beekeepers from with a question. We have three hives, two ten frames and one six-frame Nuc from a July split. Yesterday while transferring the Nuc Frames to new boxes we found all the frames to be light or low in stored reserves. Over the past four weeks, they seem to have exhausted stores. It's been dry, hot, and no fall flow. The population appears strong with heavy capped brood. My question is can we feed (heavily) to overcome the low to non-existing honey stores to get them through the winter? I placed a super of extra drawn dry frames in hopes they would fill and started feeding with 2:1 sugar water. We are Eastern Iowa, Zone 5A.
