I have feeded soya+bread yeast+ 7 y old pollen + incredient to bees about 2 weeks.
Two days ago we had the first willow pollen day.
One hive has been very vivid. They carried really much water to the hive. Whats up there?
I found 8 frames brood diffrent ages.
I have looked too hives where I just started protein feeding. Tey allways have one capped brood frame. When pollen is finish, they stop larva rearing.
In first dosage I used olive oil. Clearly bees did not like it. I changed it to canola oil.
Second renewal was that i added date to the patty. Bees seems to like it. I soften dates in hot water and then mix them in dough machine.
Well. 8 frames of brood do not come from nothing.
If I use mere natural pollen, I should have 8 frames pollen.
And happy end: I took the hive to the willow area which has mere willow bushes 2 hectares inside 1km. There is quite a pollen flow into the hive.
