    Bee-Pro® contains the best nutrients 
    available for the production of larval food!

    Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Different protein sources contain different amino acid levels; it's for this reason that a mixture of protein sources should be included in a pollen substitute. A correct amino acid balance is the key to efficient utilization of protein.

    Protein quality is determined by its level of essential amino acids. A shortage of any one essential amino acid makes overall protein utilization by the bee less efficient. For example, the bees require 4% Iso-leucine. If the current feed you are using only has 3% Iso-leucine, your bees can only utilize 75% of the available protein.

    • Can be fed in dry form in a feeder box placed in the yard or made into patties by mixing with high fructose corn syrup or sugar syrup and placed in the hive.
    • Free of all contaminants. Natural pollens may contain pesticide residue and disease carrying bacteria (foulbrood).
    • 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.
    • Gives your bees the best nutrients available for the production of larval food.
    • High protein pollen substitute which supplies the lipids, minerals, and B-complex vitamins honeybees need to produce larval food.
    • Specially formulated for the commercial beekeeper who is feeding syrup as the source of carbohydrates in the bee's diet.
