Are Your Bees Starving or Malnourished?


Most beekeepers say, "Yes", but, seasonal malnutrition is increasingly being recognized as a widespread problem.  We now realize that what many beekeepers think is normal performance is actually far below their bees' true potential. Even a small amount of feeding at the right time can improve bee health
and increase honey crops significantly, while drastically reducing winter loss. Feeding in early spring when the weather is unsettled and bees may be confined for days on end has proven beneficial.  Fall protein feeding has proven to be very successful in some regions to prepare bees for pollination the following spring. 


Protein
is the main ingredient in pollen supplements for honey bees, and proteins are made up of amino acids. Although honey provides energy for flight and for warming the hive, proteins and other minor constituents in pollen provide the essential nutrients for continued good health in older bees, for reproduction, and the necessary building blocks for development of young bees.

Researchers have determined the essential amino acids for bee health and also the proportions of each which are ideal in a bee diet. Proteins from different sources may contain greater or lesser amounts of each amino acid and some proteins may be entirely unsuitable for bee feed.  Unless all the essential amino acids are present and in approximately the correct proportions, the bees will be unable to use the feed efficiently.
