Honeybee Packages, Nucs, Queens and Beekeeping Supplies in Chicagoland
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.
