Bee nutrition is very important because it can produce excellent results if you get it right. Proteins feed can give your colonies a real boost to ensure a better spring build-up. It can potentially improve the honey production, and most importantly eliminating deficiencies that can occur during the season.
Unlike wild bees, the colonies in our hives don’t hibernate. They gather together inside the hive, forming a cluster of bees, and concentrate their reserves and energy in order to maintain the colony’s temperature.
Protein plays a very important role in bees’ diets. In theory, bees can find all of the protein required for their development in the pollen they collect.
