do a search on here.  i know there have been some recipes for pollen patties that you can make.  i don't know if you can find all the ingredients....  if you don't find the posts, i'm sure someone will be happy to put it up again.

There is pollen but main season is out and it is a little scarce. As i am newbee, may be i am fretting for nothing. can anyone tell me, how to judge that bees are getting good pollen or not mean like bees/5 min returning with pollen.
And as for brewer's yeast, brewing is illegal in pakistan without proper license, so i dont think someone will have it for a single lonely customer. Cry

You need not judge what bees do. They know their job.
If your landscape has flowers, bees gather pollen so much  as they need.

Inside the hive you see, how big brood area they have, how much honey and how much free space.

What kind of season you have there and what kind of vegetation? Dry season? When do you have monsune rains? What are best honey plants there?

Have you European bee or Asian bee?

it will help a lot.  great source.

the only way to really know if your bees need anything is to look inside.  if you are not sure what you are looking at, take some pictures and post them.  if you don't have enough posts on this site, you may need to have a moderator post them for you, but when that's done we will be happy to look.

you can also use the image search on google to compare your pictures to others.  it's a pretty good resource.

Best way is to find an experienced beekeeper and work with him.
