let me first tell you that i am new to beekeeping.
as the fall is already there and winter is going to start. What i find in my hives is very less honey, no pollen and no eggs. Actually the autumn crop was destroyed due heavy rains and flood. I feed them sugar syrup these days and they are doing well in storing it. What i am scared of is, "can they survive without pollen for almost five months?"
I am again telling you that i am new to beekeeping. Please let me know is sugar syrup sufficient or i will need some sort of pollen substitutes ?
In our area there are no such substitutes sold. So, looked for making some on my own and fortunately i got the recipe. But the problem is that brezers yeast is not available in market. Can i make pollen substitute from other ingredients leaving brezers yeast aside ?
soya+milk powder+vitamin c
Please please please help me guys
Thanks to all of you in advance
