    Question Pollen substitute alternative?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm wondering about feeding my bees a real pollen instead of giving them pollen substitute patties. Woudl they even taste it, since it already granulated and dried pollen by some other bees? Woudl it be better if I made patties out of pollen?

    Now, I know this wouldn't be an economically smart option, but I'm just curious,would the "girls" eat it as is dried or would I have to add water and make patties so that they eat it and store it into their cells or they would completely ignore it?

    Thank you very much,


    P.S. Just to clarify, I would buy for example this Pollen rather then buying these patties

    I wonder what nutritional value is left? I would feed pollen patties instead if you can get good ones.
