What to do when there is no natural bee food?
Honey is natural food store for bees. As the beekeepers take honey crops from their combs, they have to introduce food supplements to their bee communities. Supplemental feeding is also needed for maintaining hive activities (feeding the brood chamber), generating the brood and raising the queen bee.
Supplemental bee food impacts health and productivity of bee communities. Therefore it is very important to choose the right food for the bees. Honey, the natural food, consists mostly of sucrose, glucose and fructose.
Introduced alternative food must primarily contain these important nutrients. Honey Bee Pro is supplemental bee food based on sucrose obtained from sugar beet and fully meets those reguirements: sucrose and its natural ingredients fructose (fruit sugar) and glucose (grape sugar) thus represent optimal diet for your honey bees.
Other bee food, eg products with sugar starch, contains the opposite, and often totally different ingredients, which makes them uncomparable to natural nutritional ingredients taken by bees.
