One normal hive consumes 0,5 kg per week.

I make dough with dough machine.

3 kg dry radiated pollen
0,7 litre water to soften pollen over night
3 kg yeast
2 kg soya flour
1 kg fructose  
1 kg flour sugar
___________________
10,7 total

28% pollen

If dough is too wet, add soya flour and balance the mixture with it.

Then I roll the paste between two dough paper to 5-8 mm plate and give it to the top bars of frame. During one week 2 super colony can eat 0,5-1 kg that dough. New born bees eat it very eargerly.

Near 20% pollen all colonies are not willing to eat dough.

Dough will be in condition at least 3 weeks in cold. The flour sugar add the content of sugar and stops yeast fermentation.

2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup fructose

add dry mix and stir in corn syrup...add hot water until a thick paste (like peanut butter). smear on wax paper...12x12.

2 teaspoons vitamin C!


That is really huge amount! Where did you get that receipt?

If it is possible 20% radiated pollen in the patty would be good.

Look at 4. chapter:
