I¬íve been looking around for a small scale cheap pollen substitute (I don¬ít have pollen to make a supplement with just yet), and one of the descriptions I¬íve found called for ¬ďskim milk powder (not instant)¬Ē perhaps I just don¬ít know what I¬ím doing, but what is the difference between instant milk and powdered milk? I¬íve been to the grocery store and all they sell is powdered milk that is also labeled as instant, what am I missing here, or is it just an error in the book?
I¬íve also tried going to the local health food stores, but items such as brewers yeast and soy flour are several dollars a pound and mail order would likely be cost prohibitive for the amount I need.
(by the way my source is The Beekeeper¬ís Handbook 3rd edition by Dianna Sammataro and Alphonse Avitabile p62)
I¬íd like to have some stuff on hand just in case as I have not seen my bees bring in any pollen. Though this is just the second day I¬íve had them, and the first day they have been even the least bit active due to poor weather.
