A Promising Pollen Substitute for Honey Bees

March 2004

A new diet has been developed from knowledge of what is known about honey bees’ nutritional requirements, the composition of natural pollen and of existing supplementary feeds. Incorporating scientific dietetic principles by which diets for domesticated animals and insects have been developed in the past has resulted in a feed formulation with excellent potential.

The Feed (nicknamed FeedBee) was given to experimental colonies and compared with pollen and Bee-Pro (Mann Lake) in patty form. The feed intake for pollen and FeedBee was significantly higher than Bee-Pro. The preliminary results suggest that FeedBee is highly palatable as both pollen and FeedBee are equally accepted by bees.
