DIY Protein Patties / DIY Pollen Patties (video in link)

It is early January 2018, and several of the overwintering nucleus colonies (NUC) are needing a protein boost since there has been no blooms for the bees to visit since late fall.  Once the queen lays eggs, and the larvae hatch – they need a ready supply of protein for their growth and transformation from larvae to pupae to adult bee.

This video shows the process of making the pollen patties, as well as installing them into the hives for the bees to use.

Ingredients:  Soy Flour, Rye Flour, Inverted Sugar Syrup
