Well I tried it!! Kieths pollen sub. I put on about three pound patties per hive. The sub was easy to handle and squeezed up the frames real nice and easy. It looked huge compared to the 1 lb patties I'm use to feeding. I fed one hive 3 one pound store bought patties cause I wanted to see if there was any difference. I ck the hives about 10 days later and I was surprised the bees had eaten all the patty. I compared the one hive with the store bought patties to other hives and found that there was actually a difference between the two. The hives with the Jarrett patty were doing better. Same bee yard, queen was from same supplier, and were fed same amount of syrup. I'll put up some pics soon.
Well I will say that I think from now on I'll be feeding no less than three pounds at a time from now on, the bees ate it fine. Thats less work for me having to go back almost every week to feed again. Plus it cost me 6.75 to feed the hive with store bought patty vs about 3 bucks!
I'd just like to thank the keepers that take all time and money to do the research to come up with great products for our bees. Keep it up and thanks for the help! (now I better go do a mite count tomorrow, always something)
