Farmers are accustomed to feeding and caring for animals, but sometimes it’s difficult to think of honey bees as livestock. After all, they are basically wild creatures for whom we provide temporary shelter in exchange for rent paid in the form of liquid gold.
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.
With the advances in research and technology we are now aware of the role that the gut plays in human, yes human health. Things have progressed to a point where some say that the intestine is the second brain, right?
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. A reduction in available protein resources results in decreased egg laying.
