    🐝 Balanced Nutrition for Overwintering & Spring Brood

    DESCRIPTION

    Winter and Spring are the toughest months, and the months your bees need you the most!

    Help Your Bees By Giving Them What They Need.

    ⭐Bees need both protein and carbohydrate for good colony growth and to produce larger honey crops.

    ⭐ Feed protein patties in spring to ensure colony health, maximum build-up and maximum production for the entire year, and reduce losses and dwindling the following winter.

    ⭐ Save labour checking queens: Patty consumption gives a quick indication of queen and colony condition.

    ⭐ Patties ensure a balanced diet when bees are unable to forage due to weather o short of stored pollen in monoculture areas where only a few pollen sources are to found o too weak to forage subject to competition from stronger hives in the yard stressed by weather, pesticides, mites and diseases

    ⭐ Patties are easy to move around on top bars and share between hives.

    Feeding Just Sugar Is Not Enough

    Pollen provides most of the protein, amino acids, fats, vitamins and mineral requirements of a bee’s diet.

    Nectar - Adult bees convert into honey and store in beeswax cells.

    Water - Bees collect to help in maintaining the temperature and humidity of the hive and diluting stored honey to consume.

    Nutrition, Quality of Nectar & Pollenpollen patty bee feed on beehive

    Pollen is the major source of protein for honeybees. It is largely used to feed developing larvae and young bees to provide structural elements of muscles, glands and other tissues. It is also used in the production of royal jelly, which is a speciality food produced by worker bees that's fed to the queen, developing queen larvae, and worker larvae. Pollen is made up of various substances, including proteins, fats, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and many others.



    pollen patties bee feedEach developing bee needs a constant protein supply for almost six weeks in order to develop properly.

    The developing larvae receive protein in their jelly feed for 6 days. Then,12 days later when they emerge as young adults, they need to eat protein for the next 18 days to complete their growth into strong adults and commence their first role in the hive to feed new larvae.

    If protein is available when needed, your bees will grow to be strong, live long and raise good brood. But if the protein is in short supply at any point during those six weeks, some brood will either fail to develop or become weak, stunted adults. If are also more likely to be overcome mite infestations.

    In protein poor colonies, eggs and some small larvae are neglected, leaving only small amounts of patchy sealed brood. As soon as protein is provided, good health brood beings to develop again.

    Feeding your bees generously is the most reliable way to ensure will survive and be strong come spring.

    Just feeding a few patties, then stopping before natural pollen is available, can cause the brood to grow quickly, only to weaken again. The best plan is to provide more patties than the bees need immediately, ensuring that the bees never come close to running out until of feed until the flowers start blooming again.

    Ensuring that the protein needs of your bees are met until pollen start in May

    In spring, honey and pollen are fed to new the brood and the young bees to replenish the, overwintered adults. This brood is the future of the colony and the surviving adult bees invest everything they have into that growth of that brood.

    KEY FEATURES

    Why Feed Protein Patties?

    • Bees need both protein and carbohydrate for colony growth and to produce large honey crops.
    • Feed protein patties in spring to ensure colony health, maximum build-up and maximum production for the entire year, and reduce losses and dwindling the following winter.
    • Patties ensure a balanced diet when bees are:
      • unable to forage due to weather
      • short of stored pollen
      • in monoculture areas where only a few pollen sources are to found
      • too weak to forage
      • subject to competition from stronger hives in the yard
      • stressed by weather, pesticides, mites and diseases
    • Patties are easy to move around the top frame and share between hives.

    How to Get the Best Results from Feeding Patties

    • Make sure you have enough patties – at least two, and preferably four or more patties per hive
    • For spring feeding, start feeding patties no earlier than one month before the first reliable spring pollen inflow (i.e. March)
    • Locate the centre of the cluster (where the brood is being raised) smoke the bees down gently, then place one patty on the top bars in the centre of the cluster. On larger colonies use two or three patties, covering the whole brood area.
    • Ensure that the paper with the holes is facing down so that the bees have access to the patty. For weak colonies remove the bottom paper.
    • Return weekly replacing patties have been consumed. Move any patties that weren’t centred into the centre. Inspect and diagnose any colonies that are not feeding. They may have a disease or be queenless.
    • Bees will still use patties when natural pollen is available, needing them on days when snow is late poor weather confines the bees to the hive.
