I like giving this to my bees through the winter because it’s not in the hive, I do use patties in the hive some but other things lay eggs in them if the bees don’t eat it fast enough. Sugar water can freeze and chill the bees too much too I think but with this they can get it if they are flying, it has to be under cover so rain and wind doesn’t get to it.

You do need to put things like rocks in with the substitute pollen so the bees can clean themselves off before flight.

Just a stay at home Dad trying to become more self sufficient in a world getting more dependent. It’s easy to get lost in all the things of the world, sometimes the best therapy is getting your hands dirty and growing something good!
