    Some people may not know how to properly do a search.
    My posting has to do with the research done on amino acids in pollen.
    It is a straight forward statement having nothing to do with wax production.
    It was intended to inform people about the complexity of making pollen substitute patties.

    I was wondering if someone had the honey bee's A.A. requirements handy to post. I realize that pollens differ in their nutritional make-up, but it would be nice to compare the two lists. Mammals only require 9 amino acids, plants none. I 'm not sure about bees.

    Cool I was wondering if someone had the honey bee's A.A. requirements handy to post

    If you do a web search on amino acids for honey bees you will find that there is a lot unknown about their nutrition.
    My posting gives some indication of their nutritional needs.
