Use AMINO-B BOOSTER® as a ‘Protein Drench’ when bees take pollen patties very slowly: spray or drizzle the AMINO-B BOOSTER® AND HONEY B HEALTHY® into the brood area. Reduce ‘protein stress’ when bees are producing brood and available pollen sources are limited in quantity and quality of essential amino acids.
Use AMINO-B BOOSTER® along with HONEY B HEALTHY® ORIGINAL or HONEY B HEALTHY® PLUS. When used in combination, it greatly improves the rate of protein uptake by honey bees because of the HONEY B HEALTHY® formulation and amino acids in AMINO-B BOOSTER®. HONEY B HEALTHY® and AMINO-B BOOSTER® make up a one-two punch: HONEY B HEALTHY® helps the bees build up and maintain healthy immune systems improving their health while also preserving the feeding mix. AMINO-B BOOSTER® allows bees to grow more rapidly to a healthier and stronger state (it especially supplements old pollen that has lost its quality). Feeding AMINO-B BOOSTER® along with HONEY B HEALTHY® creates a synergy causing the bees to take more of the syrups.
To the novice beekeeper:
Do not use prior to long winter clusters unless preparing colonies for early pollination. Feeding AMINO-B BOOSTER® after honey bees shut down brood rearing in the fall can start brood rearing again which could be detrimental to the colony. The colony (cluster) could stay over the brood during winter not moving to honey and starve. Also, they need sufficient stores of honey due to the heat needed to maintain brood.
Feeding AMINO-B BOOSTER® AND HONEY B HEALTHY® can invite robbing during times of extreme dearth of nectar, especially late summer and early fall. If this occurs, we suggest feeding during evening within the hive and reducing the entrance to prevent robbers from entering.
What is important is this: the AMINO-B BOOSTER® small amino acids and small peptides (the components of AMINO-B BOOSTER®) are able to enter almost any cell or membrane in the bees’ body. They are easy to absorb and to assimilate by growing cells. Their presence is very important for all protein activities such as the function of the immune system. Providing all needed amino acids as small molecules is a great benefit to any organism, especially if it is growing, healing, or producing milk, royal jelly, etc.
Bottom line, when fed AMINO-B BOOSTER® and HONEY B HEALTHY®, our experiences have been honey bees not only stay healthy but flourish. We encourage you to try it for yourself and look forward to hearing from you on your experiences and results.
