    are you planning on feeding some HBH with Amino B Buster to your hives Irwin?
    Bet that would mix very nicely into protein patties

    Only spoke to a couple keepers using this product and both said they did not use any controls or tests...so no comparisons in what it does or doesn't do,

    I started feeding syrup with HBH last fall. I also used HBH in a drench. Its a high concentration of HBH and syrup sprayed between the frames and on the bees. I did this twice, a week or so apart and would have done it one more time but it got too cold. It is such a high concentration of HBH that the bees won't drink it from a feeder, but when used as a drench, they will clean it from themselves and off the frames. Then this March I started feeding them HBH with Amino B Booster in a feeder. Now they are not taking any more syrup as nectar is starting to flow. So...can I tell a difference in my hives since I started doing this? Can't say as I started my first hives last April, so I have nothing to compare to; however, I can say this...my hives are huge! They are busting at the seams. My neighbor has about a dozen hives and mine have a much larger population than his. Tried to split my largest hive today and we spent over an hour looking for the queen...never found her...too many bees! So I put excluders on to isolate her. Will I use HBH this fall like I did last fall? Absolutely, but I'll add Amino B then as well (didn't have any last fall).

    Only 4 days to go Irwin. Almost there.
    I thought Manitoba had 3 seasons. July, August and winter?

    A beautiful 75 degrees here yesterday. A dark and "cold" 46 today. My girls use a lot of resources with weather like this. That's the way it's been for the last several weeks.
