My question is the following: when bees bring pollen to the hive it has already been mixed with their saliva before storing in their pollen baskets. Then they bring it home and store it in cells and perhapsw add something else. Now it is called bee bread. Now when they need to feed the young larvae, do they then feed this bee bread to the larvae or do the feed bees eat this bee bread and then feed a milky substance to the larvae.

I'm pretty sure the way it works is...
the feed bees eat this bee bread and then feed a milky substance to the larvae.
