If you are still needing to feed syrup sometime that (as well as high ash honeys like aster) will cause dysentery although it doesn't sound like you have a problem. If your bees are near your home you'll find this yellow wonder of nature on your car, your laundry, your pearly white pool edging etc. Although dysentery and nosema have similar symptoms, nosema usually results in bees unable to fly and walking around in front of the hive. (not to be confused with severe mite infestation which also has deformed wings) If that happens Fumagillin is indicated and will clear it up almost instantly. I'm with Michael with what you have described, do nothing.
Watching the bees today when the sun just slightly warmed up things, the bees came out by the
hundreds....I think it was a brief pooping flight, one bee landed on my hand and pooped!
20 min. later, they where all in.
