Exactly. Pollen stimulates brood production as a protein source. Nectar does not, being a a carbohydrate source.Pollen
One is as good as the other.Can I use diluted HFCS say at 1:2 (~40% solids) or 1:3 (~27% solids) to stimulate brood? Or does it have to be sucrose syrup??
Not sure who that's directed at but if me, natural nectar is mostly 80% + water. So I guess it could be said that is the ideal mix.Question: What ratio of syrup would you say to be best for simulating a nectar flow?
