not that anybody really cares but I've posted a kind lousy video of my bees eating dry sugar in the past and I made a little better one
spring is about to bust loose here and this got all the bugs through the winter
Red Dirt Apiaries
It didn't look like they were eating the pollen patty. How long had it been on?

It's been on about a week and they aren't too interested
They've nibbled it some but not much, the Maples are blooming here but the weather has been too lousy for much foraging.
Gonna be 60 on Sunday, I'll open em up and look for brood
Pollen Patties must be placed on the top bars very close to (~2 inches?) the brood early in the season. Later on, when colonies are strong and the weather is warm, apparently bees will travel farther to eat them.
what kind of patty, brand? we use only megabee and our bees eat them quick

Thanks for sharing. They look great and so calm, are they Carniolans?
