honey bees feeding on wheat
I guess my bees never read that bees do not feed on wheat? This evening while walking around a wheat field across the road from my hives I heard the sound of many bees thinking it might be a DCA I started looking around for the bees to my surprise they were all over the wheatfield gathering pollen. Bees are supposed to feed on corn pollen but are said to suffer from the effects of the neonics seed treatment but here all the local farmers use their own wheat for seed as roundup ready wheat has not yet been developed so that is a plus for me. Maybe bees are smarter than we think
Re: honey bees feeding on wheat
I have read here http://www.beesource.com/resources/u...-bee-colonies/ that Wheat can be used to supplement the protein nutrition of bees. I am confused because I cannot find many references supporting this recipe.
