Re: Purina Hearty Bee Thoughts
I follow Rusty as well. My hives still shut down on schedule and are currently broodless. Pollen sub being available, along with a constant source of sugar syrup, did not prolong the brood rearing in the fall, nor has it initiated it yet this winter. Perhaps different locations also have an impact? I wish the role of nutrition in raising and caring for bees was better understood. Like varroa and hemolymph, I think we have parts of it wrong.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
