Our Pro-Sweet Liquid Feed is a great choice for hobby beekeepers! Unlike sugar water, Pro-Sweet has both binomial (bees treat these like nectar) and monomial sugars (bees treat these like honey), so it not only stimulates the bees but helps them put on weight. Pro-Sweet won’t crystallize or ferment like sugar water, plus there is no more going through the check out line with a cart full of sugar or making a mess of your kitchen!

Treatment - Must be fed dry - Apply 10 g (about 1 Tbsp) of Super DFM - Honey Bee mixed into 1 cup of finely granulated sugar and/or Ultra Bee Pollen Substitute. Spread mixture over the top bars of the frames of the brood nest. Treat each colony spring and fall. If bees are being transported for the winter, apply once every 4 months.
