Pollen substitutes provide the protein, beneficial vitamins, lipids and minerals bees need to thrive and raise brood when natural pollen is not available in sufficient quantities. Ultra Bee provides the industry’s highest protein content and has a complete amino acid profile, which allows bees to utilize all available protein. Ultra Bee is micronized to the correct particle size for easy consumption by honey bees and is made with only the finest ingredients.
Independent research done by Randy Oliver of scientificbeekeeping.com and published in the American Bee Journal, August and September 2014, shows that Ultra Bee produced results statistically equal to those of natural pollen!
HOW TO USE
Ultra Bee Patties allow beekeepers to feed pollen substitutes directly in the hive, which is beneficial for weaker colonies or when colonies are prevented from foraging because of cold, wet weather. In contrast, dry pollen substitutes must be feed outside of the hive. Ultra Bee Patties provide an excellent source of the protein and carbohydrates honey bees need to raise brood.
Place 1-3 patties (no need to remove the paper) on the top bars of the hive. For a two story colony, place the patties on the top bars of the lower box. Do not feed patties when honey supers are present.
RECIPE PROTEIN CAKE
ULTRA BEE® DRY 30 %
GLUCOSE/FRUCTOSE SYRUP 50 %
DEXTROSE or SUGAR 20%
Practical example: Mix 5 kg of granulated sugar ground to 12 kg of high fructose syrup such as FRUCTOMIX, MELIOSE or MIX IDONEO (Do not use sucrose syrups because the cakes will harden). Mix well and slowly add 7 kg of Ultra bee. With wet hands ration into 200g patties (maximum 1cm thick) and cover with tracing paper on the top and bottom. Make four cuts to the paper at the bottom and place it right in the middle on top of the frames, very close to the brood nest.
Approximate COST: 2,20€/kg (tax included). Each 200g patty would cost 0,44€.
WITH A ULTRA-BEE BAG WE CAN PREPARE approximately 300 patties.
FEEDING UB DRY
Strong colonies can be fed dry pollen substitute when the weather is warm enough for bees to fly. Place Ultra Bee in Mann Lake’s Dry Pollen Substitute Feeder (FD-115) or in a box or shallow super with a bottom. Several pieces of wood or other objects should be placed on top of the Ultra Bee to provide a place for bees to groom. Place the box in an open drum or pail tipped on its side to protect Ultra Bee from wind, rain and dew.
Feed approximately 1.5 lb (680 g) per colony when sufficient natural pollen is not available or to keep bees from robbing nearby cattle feed lots.
