Our bees "god willing" will be going into early almonds this next season and I need to make sure these hives are built up so they'll be good bees for the growers.
My plan is to dry feed pollen sub in October. Is this right? I have battled hive beetles in the past when I've used patties so there's now way I want to do that again.
I also plan on feeding light syrup around the middle of Dec. or the first week of Jan.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Also, if someone has a broker that they would recommend that would be a blessing also.
