Bee Feed

Pollen, Pollen Substitute, and Pollen Patties are fed in early spring about 6 weeks prior to the major honeyflow. This stimulates brood rearing and allows the colonies to be at maximum strength for the honeyflow.


Winter Patties are an excellent emergency feed for colonies in late winter. They contain a relatively low protein level which will not stimulate brood rearing. The patties will provide necessary carbohydrates to keep colonies from starving.


Honey-B-Healthy is an essential oil preparation. When added to sugar syrup, it produces rapid build-up and boosts the bee's immune system. It also helps prevent mold and fungus in the feeders.



Making Sugar Syrup

For spring feeding create a 1:1 syrup using 1 pound water to 1 pound sugar. For fall feeding make a 2:1 syrup using 2 pounds sugar per pound of water. Water must be very hot to dissolve sugar! We do not feed sugar syrup during cold weather when bees are not able to take cleansing flights.
