Dos & Don'ts Of Feeding Bees

1. Do not use an entrance feeder in the fall. It can invite robber bees.

2. Only use a top feeder.

3. Do not feed sugar water alone.

4. Add protein, amino B, and Honey B Healthy to all of your fall liquid feeding.

5. Do not trust the amount of honey stored in your hives. Your hive can consume it before winter arrives. Feed!

6. Feed 1:1 liquid in late summer through fall with additives to stimulate brood rearing of bees with winter physiology that live 4-6 months through the winter.

7. Stop feeding liquid when daytime highs are 50 degrees (f) or below.

8. Feed your bees Winter-Bee-Kind winter food when temperatures drop below 50 degrees.
