Brood rearing and honey production by colonies of free flying honey bees fed wheast whey yeast or sugar syrup


Brood rearing and honey production by colonies of free flying honey bees fed wheast whey yeast or sugar syrup



American Bee Journal 119(12): 833-836



ISSN/ISBN: 0002-7626

Overwintered colonies of honey bees were fed Wheast, whey-yeast diets, or sugar syrup from March 1-Oct. 1, 1978. The amount of sealed brood was measured every 3 wk and the colony weights recorded weekly. There was no statistical difference between the amount of brood reared by bees fed either Wheast, whey-yeast or sugar syrup. There was no difference in total colony weights when the test was terminated. Greatest monthly increases in weight, regardless of treatment, occurred during May and July with all colonies losing significant amounts of weight during Aug. In the Beltsville area [Maryland, USA] consumption of pollen substitutes in early spring did not stimulate colonies. Colonies offered only sugar syrup were collecting enough natural pollen to rear as much brood as colonies offered pollen substitutes.
