Health Items

Health Items for your bees!  We offer a wide variety of bee feeds and health items with a range of options for administering solid and liquid feed, with or without the protein that stimulates brood production.

Benefits of additional feeding for a bee colony:

  • When starting package bees or nucleus colonies on new equipment, feeding stimulates comb building and brood production.
  • If early spring flowers are delayed by bad weather and honey reserves are depleted, bee feeding prevents spring starvation.
  • If honey stores are low going into the fall, bee feed provides enough resources for the winter.
  • Emergency bee feeding is essential for the health of the hive during harsh winters; we recommend a solid bee feed such as Hive Alive Fondant.
