WHAT IT IS: If you have ever fed your bees sugar syrup before, this is sugar syrup on a completely new level. It's ready to feed to your bees and developed to be ready to store by the bees immediately. There isn't any need for the bees to process it before storing it in the comb, it's ready to go.
NOT AVAILABLE FOR SHIPPING: These jugs and buckets are so heavy, that they are only available for pickup from our store in Birmingham.
HOW TO USE IT: This thick syrup can be used for the bees to store away for winter food or also fed during the spring for stimulating brood. The syrup is thicker than a 2:1 thick sugar syrup mix. It works well in the spring and fall without any need to dilute it. Just pour directly into feeding containers and give to the bees.
THE BEST PART: Pro-sweet syrup is so popular because it doesn't require any mixing, is a great substitute if honey isn't available, and doesn't require any work from the bees to process it. Unlike sugar water, Pro Sweet has binomial (nectar) and monomial (honey) sugars in it so it is the best of both worlds. The mix won't ferment or crystalize either which is a huge plus. The mixture can be diluted, but it isn't necessary.
