    Default Mega bee

    This is my first year feeding in the spring for brood I've always just let them do their thing and try and keep them from swarming but have always been dissiponted with the number of bees going into May and poplar season.So I got ten Lbs of megabee in powder form what is the best way to get it to my girls and how much per hive.I was thinking Mt Camp way of just putting some powder form on newspaper on upper broodbox in about a week and a half.Any suggestions would be helpfull.I've got ten hives and am not doing this for splits or anything but bees going into honey production.

    Mixing mine with two year old honey and mixing it up with just enough to look like peanut butter. Put it on wax paper, wrap it up like a sandwich and stick it between the hive box and the top super. A handsize batch will be gone it 2 weeks.
