CANDIPOLLINE GOLD NEW !!! 2Kg (Supplied in 1Kg sealed plastic pouches) - COMPLETE BEE FOOD - (besides real flowers of course !!!) I am proud to be one or the first suppliers to offer this much needed product to the UK beekeeping world. Unlike sugar syrup or candy/Fondant based products, this offers your bees a much improved diet when natural foraging isn't possible due to bad weather or such times as early spring when a stimulant is needed or during the 'june gap'. Candipolline Goldconcept is based on a number of scientific publications showing the importance of feeding bees with sugar candy added with a protein supplement. Pollen itself is the most complete source of proteins and microelements and it's considered the "Gold standard" for bees nutrition. The nutrition of bees with a protein rich candy sugar results in more spring productivity, increased population growth of the colony and a consistent decrease of sensibility towards pathogens e.g. nosema spp., malphingamoeba mellificae ecc. Overall the mortality of colonies is decreased consistently. A two year long study has shown that bees fed with syrup have a mortality rate of 23%, bees fed with protein rich candy 10% and non fed bees have a 40 % mortality rate. Candipolline Gold is a "complete food" since the most important elements in bees nurition are sugar (nectar) and proteins (pollen). Major italian beekeeping organizations such as UNAPI are using the product and it is rapidly gaining enthusiasm amongst beekeepers HOW TO USE CANDIPOLLINE GOLD can be transferred to different containers and quantities as preferred, or directly into feeding chambers in Nucleus and Mating hives. Alternatively, you can just cut a hole in the middle of the bag and lay it over the CROWNBOARD FEEEDER/BREATHER hole.

bee food in a hurry, 13 Mar. 2014
i have used many products and iam long in the tooth when it comes to bee keeping.very good product, bees took in down very well, liked packaging on it not too thin as to split on rough frame tops in hive.

My bees are trying to eat it but they don't go for it as they do syrup., 28 July 2016
After 4wks the bees have still hardly touched it. They seem to be unable to eat it due to the solid nature of the product. I fear it will go mouldy before they ever get through it.Well after a couple of months they got through the bag. As nectar and pollen became in short supply the bees moved onto the candipolline...I think it'd make a nice winter food, but the bees turned their noses up at it when there was nectar (and syrup) available. I think it's going to be valuable to add to the hive around feb/mar as the queen starts to lay again. I guess it will also encourage laying too. Probably a great choice for early spring when food is scarce.

Strong swarm this Spring, 19 April 2016
Overwintered my first hive with it and the swarm is strong and flying well this Spring. I plan to include this in every hive this Autumn from now on.
