Absolutely right DanI, I‘m in the same position. If by plonking fondant on that they turn out not to need, makes me a “bee haver” then so be it.Exactly but the problem this year is that it has been unseasonably mild with little forage. My hives were winter ready at the end of October but they are light now because they have been out most days and have continued to brood. So I have plonked fondant on them for the first time before Christmas ever........... and so have lots of people
Many folk haven’t “had” bees long enough to make the judgements some on here are professing should be made. So cut us some slack and if we have to remove the odd frame of uneaten food in the Spring - well we can use it to maintain nucs.
That was a tip the same folk were putting out in other threads.
