Honeybee Series: Feeding Your Bees
Yes, bees have survived for thousands of years without human intervention, but for the Beekeeper who wants to be successful raising bees, sometimes your bees will need supplemental feed. Maybe you have your hives located where there aren’t enough floral resources available year-round to sustain the colony. Maybe the weather is too cold, wet or windy for a long time and colony resources are depleted. Maybe you’ve just installed a swarm into a new hive. All of these instances are good reasons to supplement the naturally available floral resources with feed.
