Physiological parameters of Africanized and European honey bees were explored when fed 4 different protein diets. The treatments were: (1) freshly frozen bee collected pollen, (2) dry powdered old pollen, and two artificial protein diets, (3) Bee Pro and (4) Feed Bee.
Bee Pro is a soy meal based diet and has been the industry standard. Feed bee is a recently developed non-soy based diet. Results are from a laboratory caged experiment that started with 100 newly emerged bees and from a field cage experiment carried out in 5 frame nucs started with a queen and 500 grams of newly emerged bees.
The laboratory caged experiment demonstrated that honey bees consumed as much Feed Bee as freshly collected pollen and bees weighed as much as bees fed fresh pollen.
