So I have the bees all settled in two nucs picked up today and the cut out bees in ten frame deep. The clover, trees and every thing else is in full bloom and on top of that have all the comb from the cut out available to the bees. Have entrance reducers in place. Did not have the time and forgot the sugar to set up the feeders , do they need it with everything else that is out there? The cut out bees where bringing in loads of pollen. So feed or not to feed is the question?

Pollen is protein, nectar and sugar water are carbohydrates. Sugar syrup also stimulates comb building and brood production if you are interested in either.
