Re: HELP!!! How to feed Ultra Bee Dry Feed (pollen substitute)
Well, if they're clustered and can't get to a patty on the top bars, they sure aren't getting to an open feeder. If they're tightly clustered the only way to get pollen to them anyways is to break the cluster and insert a frame of pollen stores anyways, and I'm very reluctant to bust up a cluster. Yes patties will dry out; I add a little vegetable oil to my mix as well as keeping them sandwiched in wax paper (when I make them up, I make the patties in squares of wax paper for the freezer. Then the wax paper help keep the patty moistened until the girls eat it). The bees chew right through it.
