Have a peek at the fondant. If it is being eaten quickly, provide some more.

This is a critical time for the bees. There is a real danger of starvation. If you are in any doubt at all, you can put fondant over one of the holes in the crown board and if they take it you know they need more. If they don’t need it, they will leave it. It is too cold at this time of year to feed syrup, it must be fondant. Read more about feeding here.
