    Oh ya
    The ultrabee Iím feeding open dry until the bees quit taking open dry when pollen comes out.
    The nutrabee is inside, now through TIL mid June.
    Interesting enough, Iíve yet to see pollen but my brood nest looks just like Iím in mid flow

    Ian are you doing any comparison with nutra bee to ultrabee, or any other patty form?

    Yes, by far the best results are Nutrabee
    I donít want to step on any other names so Iíll leave that trial to myself.
    Nutrabee has slow consumption, and had trouble with drips down to the bottom board but those problems were related to conditions. Things straightened out and Iím one happy Beekeeper
    You should see these brood nests. Terrific
