Re: HELP!!! How to feed Ultra Bee Dry Feed (pollen substitute)
I'll light this fire again if I may. I am thinking about getting some, but was curious how long it will store. I assume if it's dry and you keep it that way it should store for a good long while. I'm just not sure how much I need or how quick the bees will take it, so I'd hate to get a 50 lb bag and then have it spoil in the feeder before they figure out what it is.
This is also my first year and attempt at feeding bees. I have 7 hives that I am carrying through the winter, and so far have lost none due to malnutrition! Even a tiny colony that I cut out of tree on 12/30/12 is doing good with just honey in the feeder on the hive. But I'd like to get all my girls a good start this spring. If 15 hives can go through 5 lbs in half a day, then perhaps I should go for the 50lb sack! Any recommendations?
One package to 4 hives in 3 months. After 12 months I'm over a dozen hives and growing. Head over heels for bees!!!
