low food supplies in my hives

I lost 2 of my 4 hives last winter, I think due to inadequate food supplies.  this year I did catch or Remove hives from other locations to get back to last years level but all the hives are low on reserves.  I know we are coming up on the last hurrah for a honey flow when the Brazilian peppers bloom and then forage will be scanty.  Does anyone in our area use candy boards to feed their bees October thru Jan -Feb?  Or is it better to stick to sugar water.

Speaker Presentation––American Foul Brood (AFB) at Pine Jog Environmental Center

August 19, 2016 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
AFB is caused by the bacteria Paenibacillus larvae. This disease is by far the most contagious and destructive one for honey bees, and requires drastic actions by beekeepers to avoid or eliminate it. Once considered rare, its presence has increased in FL over the last few years. In a specially-arranged meeting, Caitlin Gill (Apiary Inspector for our District) will describe how you can recognize it if it does show up in your hive, and discuss how you can deal with it so it doesn't spread.PBCBA…See More
