    My observations on my hives today answered the question no one could disclose to me. The pollen cells are and will be void of bananas. The nutrition of the banana would only affect a small percentage of the brood. The bees would get vitamins and minerals but not help on increase. Any good development on the larva would be due majorly on the pollen stores. Maybe it can be a remedy for chalk brood but I don't expect it to manipulate egg laying. Thanks for all of your participation on my post.

    So, does that tell you anything? It should. It would me.

    I believe he is referencing this quote.

    I even could be wrong in my own statement I'm expanding on. But.

    If I may reiterate; I'm as contemptible about manufactured bee bread, as you are about the banana will not or can not supply adequate nutrition to the honey bee. Do the bees store the Patty?

    The post was to evoke thought, that if the manufactured patty or home made patty for that matter, was superior over a banana. And neither being placed in the pollen cells, what would be the harm to feed them cheaply on bananas.

    I am not able to locate the nutritional values of the patties to compare.

    And no one has come forward with: Oh! don't feed bees bananas! It will kill them or make them killer bees or a banana can cause a disease inside the hive.

    What I got was contempt prior to investigation, and an attitude like I had called your mother a bad name. I didn't intend the post to go BANANAS as the subject may imply.

    If your thought patterns are anywhere near "outside the box" the thread will go bananas.
