Here is the related thread: http://www.beesource.com/forums/showthread.php?342143-Ultra-Bee-Powder-patty-recipeHey Gumpy, thanks. You're right. Thanks for catching it. The correct amount is 6 cups, not 6 ounces.
Would this feeding of dry pollen substitute (Ultra Bee) really help in times of shortage? Are the bees actually storing it for later use or are they consuming it quickly without storing it?
Michael Palmer's recipe using it requires that it be fed in a "wet" mixture.
Is there an advantage to adding pollen collected from the bees to Michael's recipe? I'm interested in hearing what others think.
Thanks, Mike. This recipe is useful.My BeePro formula is
25 lbs. 2:1 syrup to 10lbs. BeePro
I make it thick enough so it won't run down between the combs. The mixture thickens considerably over might.
Honey buckets weigh 2 lbs.
Add 2:1 until scale reads 27
Add BeePro until scale reads 37
