Everyone has eyes in their head. Open the hive and look, does the hive has food. 2 frames sugar/honey is minimum.But but but .... we have just had a starvation warning from the BBKA ?????
You just use your brain. Do not feed so much sugar that you must extract it. However a hive must have all the time 5 kg food that it does not die during bad days.foulbrood can stay for decades and not be obvious, but flare up when the bees are stressed, eg when starving, if you feed sugar syrup when they have plenty of stores they will just add it to their stores, then when you have your nice full supers ready to extract ... you are extracting sugar syrup that has been processed into so called honey
