I haven't been around here in a while. My computer's HD crashed and it took me a while to get it fixed. And as it is with so many computer users, I had virtually NOTHING backed up on CD's or anything else. I lost the address for Beemaster, and just found it when I was sent an email about the 1000 members strong. Way to go!!! I'm glad I found Beemaster again!
I have one colony of bees that I wanted to feed a pollen substitute to. However, I have no pollen and right now finances dictate that I cannot buy any pollen or the substitutes that are available. Back before my HD crashed, I found a site where the owner said that he had come up with a recipe for a pollen substitute patty that seemed to be palletable to the bees. Before giving the recipe he joked about how he was going to charge a certain price for the "secret" recipe. But in the end, he charged nothing for it.
I had the site and the page bookmarked in my favorites, but as I said, all of that information was lost when the HD crashed. I don't remember anything about the recipe except that it contained no pollen and that everything in it was available from the grocery store. Can anyone out there help me with finding this site? If not, can anyone help me with a recipe that I can use that would contain things that are redily available from the groecry store? I hate to do it this way, but I can only do what my $$$ allows me to do.
Thanks in advance for any help that you may be able to give.
I learned a hard lesson.... if it ain't backed up..... BACK IT UP!!!! Don't be guilty of having to learn that lesson the hard way like I did!!
