How much stores should a colony have to over Winter? I know it will depend on the size of the colony and the severity of the weather, but is there an equation to give beeks an idea or is it something that can only be gained by experience? There must be a fine line between losing a colony due to lack of food and causing early swarming due to lack of space through over feeding.
