How much stores do they have? Once they have a few frames of stores, I do not feed. Since bees generally only build new comb when there is a flow, you are probably OK. However, you really need to know how much honey they have in reserve.It's in the critical period when colonies can starve waiting on nectar. If my bees are building some comb and I'm not feeding them syrup, can I assume they have enough stores and are finding some nectar? I don't want to hassle with stored syrup.
