I recently trapped a very small swarm in a bait hive. I live in the city and there is still a good nectar flow in my area. Do you think I should feed them sugar syrup to increase their survival ability? Queen is laying but not a lot. Also, they stopped building comb in the 5 frame nuc they are in. My few hives are treatment-free and I tend not to feed, except on rare occasions. Any suggestions? Thanks for all.

Young colonies and small colonies cannot take full advantage of flows to few foragers. Feed. Nature doesn't care if your bees make it as beekeepers we should assist colonies that are weak and breed from those that are strong nothing wrong with feeding if they need it.
