I checked the Chronicles for what the bees did last year. They were given their last syrup on November 2nd. At that time i noted they didn't take much then either. I wish I had checked last years notes earlier this month. What I need is a calendar for bee work. So I have started to use my Google account calendar for my bees.
I can create an event for any known impute. Say a last feeding on the first of October. Then set the calendar to remind me a few days in advance. So i can include mite treatments, possible requeening dates, first of Spring feeding dates, etc, etc.
I know these times aren't written in stone and can vary. I can finesse the dates as i go plus the heads up will keep me from trying to feed my bees in November anymore.
