CANDIPOLLINE GOLD NEW !!! 2Kg (Supplied in 1Kg sealed plastic pouches) – COMPLETE BEE FOOD – (besides real flowers of course !!!) I am proud to be one or the first suppliers to offer this much needed product to the UK beekeeping world. Unlike sugar syrup or candy/Fondant based products, this offers your bees a much improved diet when natural foraging isn’t possible due to bad weather or such times as early spring when a stimulant is needed or during the ‘june gap’. Candipolline Goldconcept is based on a number of scientific publications showing the importance of feeding bees with sugar candy added with a protein supplement. Pollen itself is the most complete source of proteins and microelements and it’s considered the “Gold standard” for bees nutrition. The nutrition of bees with a protein rich candy sugar results in more spring productivity, increased population growth of the colony and a consistent decrease of sensibility towards pathogens e.g. nosema spp., malphingamoeba mellificae ecc. Overall the mortality of colonies is decreased consistently. A two year long study has shown that bees fed with syrup have a mortality rate of 23%, bees fed with protein rich candy 10% and non fed bees have a 40 % mortality rate. Candipolline Gold is a “complete food” since the most important elements in bees nurition are sugar (nectar) and proteins (pollen). Major italian beekeeping organizations such as UNAPI are using the product and it is rapidly gaining enthusiasm amongst beekeepers HOW TO USE CANDIPOLLINE GOLD can be transferred to different containers and quantities as preferred, or directly into feeding chambers in Nucleus and Mating hives. Alternatively, you can just cut a hole in the middle of the bag and lay it over the CROWNBOARD FEEEDER/BREATHER hole.
