Winter Patties (40lb case) Contains approximately 40 patties. These patties contain Megabee and Honey-B-Healthy and are excellent emergency feed for colonies in late winter. These contain 2.5% protein, a relatively low protein level which will not stimulate brood rearing. Rather the patties will provide necessary carbohydrates to keep colonies from starving. They should be placed directly on top of the cluster. A shim is helpful to provide adequate space for the patties.

Note that sugar syrup should not be fed during cold weather when bees are not able to take cleansing flights. 

 

**We do suggest waiting for cooler weather to order winter patties. If you are ordering them during warmer weather, there is some risk of melting during shipment. Melting does not harm the usability of this product, but can make for a messier experience.**
