Has anyone ever tried mixing MDF with plain yogurt as a carrier and put it inside bee hives? My thoughts is that yogurt has some probiotics and if we boast it with super MDF as a carrier that the bees would readily eat it would get distributed easily and quickly?

One of the best forms of probiotics with the highest load and diverse is raw saurkraut. But not like the kind you buy at the supermarket, it has to be the stuff that was never cooked before packaging. Usually health food stores or sometimes youll see it at farm markets.
I just wish we didnt have to turn our bees into dogs just for them to survive. We really shouldnt be concerned with all this, yet here we are.
And if you havent noticed, we are also becoming dogs for somebody. Not overnight, but we are getting further and further away from just being able to live without shots, chemicals or electronics.

Not really a new concept. Here is a discussion on Beesource from 2009.

well you have to warm it up a little....

can't expect bees to eat cold sauerkraut.

GG
well some queen breeders use plain yogurt to prime queen cup instead of royal jelly bees eat it and than fill the cell with royal jelly...so i figure mix probiotics into yogurt as a carrier and it has some sweet flavor to get the bees to consume it and share it. I was just wondering if anyone had tried it?
