I got a couple cases of welches grape concentrate. ingredients are : concentrated grape juice and vitamin c. Could I not feed this to my hive and make grape flavored cut combs. I know it wont be real honey but would sell as a novelty I think. Anyone every try this or is there some reson not to???


if that's works id like to try strawberry lol


p.s. that's grape juice makes killer wine. just don't tell them its welches

why does it give them the bloody poo. too much fiber or infection from the juice. answer is to short.

I know bees and bald face hornets are always cleaning my mess from making wine. do I need to keep them away from it.

Anything with excess solids in it tends to cause dysentery. Mine work the rotting pears in a dearth and they always get dysentery. I've fed them strawberry juice before and it gave them dysentery. I tend to try to avoid feeding them fruit juice since then. It isn't worth doing on purpose.
