Ensure that your beehive is thriving well with this Little Giant Pollen Substitute Powder Bee Supplement! It contains all the vitamins, minerals, lipids and antioxidants bees need to produce food for their larvae. This high-protein substitute can be used for building colonies in late winter or early spring, to prepare for pollination and to maintain or increase brood production prior to and after honey flow. The Bee Supplement is free of all contaminants and contains no natural pollen, as natural pollen may still contain pesticide residue and disease-carrying bacteria. Can be fed dry in a feeder box or made into pollen patties. Comes in a 1-lb. canister.

†Capacity is calculated by total volume. When using container, choose a capacity greater than what you need to prevent overfilling and spills.
There is no specific time for how long the substitute should be left in the hive but the amount provided should be roughly the amount the hive would consume in about 7 to 10 days. If they are being made into pollen patties, the bees will eventually lose interest if the patty becomes old and dried out. Ultimately the bees are going to prefer it to be on the fresher side.
Can this be used with dogs?
