  7. Re: Making Michael Palmers inexpensive pollen sub

    This is for Mike Palmer's Pollen patty mix, not that he has his own pollen substitute recipe.

    Re: UltraBee vs. AP23 vs. Homemade

    In my opinion Mega Bee is the best pollen sub, however i use Mann Lake's ultrabee because i find it to be the best value for the investment.

    I've used just about every pollen sub that has been...

  18. Re: Northeast US Beekeepers: Nuc or Packages?

    First off you didn't lose your bees to Wax Moth, something else killed them and wax moth moved in.
