Yeast and soya for brood
« on: April 27, 2012, 02:47:00 PM »

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.

I think I would use corn syrup rather than oil. Bees don't need oil.

Yes, once you start feeding pollen substitute, you cannot stop. They will brood heavily and need food.

The whole recipe this time

sugar syrup:
- 1 litre water
- 1 kg sugar
- 1/2 kg fructose
- 250 g date package

700 g  dry yeas
300 g irradiated pollen
300 g soya flour forage HP 100
100 g canola oil

multivitamin liquid
multi B-vitamin pill
magnesium pill

patty must be soft like morning porriage.

The goal is to get the stuff so tasty that bees eargely consume it.

Date is 96% sugar but bees seems to like its aroma.
