“Artificial feeding of honeybee colonies (Apis mellifera L.)”

Incorporation of manganese at 0.2% level in the syrup which added to honeybee colonies six times at Spring reflects on increment of brood rearing by 31%, and surplus sealed honey areas by 28.8% (4).
Early spring feeding with 0.6% vitamin C and its combination with 0.0015% cobalt or 0.00075% cobalt alone, six time at 6 days interval considerably affects the amount of brood reared and the quantity of honey and wax produced by 1st hybrid of Carniolan honeybee colonies (4,5).
Just wondering if Mr Blue boxes throws a little cobalt ,manganese, etc into that special patty mix.These are very small amounts per serving
