HONEY B HEALTHY® ORIGINAL
HONEY B HEALTHY® is the original feeding stimulant composed of lemongrass and spearmint essential oils. It is a Non-GMO emulsion that Helps Promote Healthy, Vigorous Hives® when used as a feeding stimulant for late winter, early spring, fall or during dearths of nectar.
Also, add HONEY B HEALTHY® to your feeding mix to help build up packages, nucs and swarms. For a minimal cost per treatment, many commercial and hobbyist beekeepers are using HONEY B HEALTHY® as a cost-effective way to keep their colonies strong, healthy and vigorous.
HONEY B HEALTHY® helps calm honey bees when used as a spray. Spraying honey bees helps prevent fighting when combining nucs, swarms and colonies. When sprayed on new wax or plastic foundation, HONEY B HEALTHY® helps encourage the bees to draw out the foundation. To use HONEY B HEALTHY® as a spray to calm the bees instead of smoke, use 4 teaspoons per quart 1:1 sugar-water mix.
Mixing Directions: Shake well. Mix at room temperature. For Feeding: Mix 1-2 teaspoons per 1 quart of syrup. For a larger feed, mix 4-8 teaspoons per 1 gallon of syrup. For Spray/Drench: Mix 4 teaspoons per 1 quart of syrup. For larger quantity, mix 16 teaspoons per 1 gallon of syrup.
DO NOT FEED OR DRENCH WITH HONEY SUPERS ON.
Feeding HONEY B HEALTHY® can cause robbing during times of extreme dearth of nectar, especially during the fall. If this occurs, we suggest feeding during the evening within the hive and reducing the entrance to prevent robbers from entering.
