FeedBee is a palatable and highly acceptable pollen substitute that can be fed to honeybee colonies in spring or fall. It is taken by the bees at the same rate as pollen when both are fed in patty form. It is more rapidly consumed than are other pollen substitutes tried when given in patty form or open dry-powder feeding trials.
FeedBee has at least the same nutritive value (as judged by protein in the bees’ bodies) as pollen or Bee-Pro when fed to bees in laboratory cages. Those benefits follow through into brood production, populations of worker bees, and honey production in hives in actual, commercial, apiary management conditions.
The details of our experimental results will be presented in Saffari’s dissertation, which is well on its way to completion, and then in the apicultural literature. Already, the value for helping with spring build-up and overwintering strength is proven. Although FeedBee is available on the market now, we expect that more trials and some refinements will increase the value of the product to beekeepers.
