Custom Bee Feed is made in Australia by Australian beekeepers for an Australian climate. They have tailored Custom Bee Feed to ensure the bees are getting the best possible nutrition. The product consists of a unique balance of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which are designed to promote a healthy hive that will thrive even in the harshest of conditions.
Originally developed as a full pollen replacement, we have however discovered that it works exceptionally well as a supplement to natural pollen. This is because nearly all of Australia’s pollen producing flora are deficient in some form of nutrition and don’t meet a bees basic nutritional requirements. Supplementary feeding allows bees to make the most of natural pollen when it is available, and maintain strong brood nests when there is no natural pollen available. Our product’s balance of crude protein, vitamins, minerals and amino acids have delivered us far superior results to feeding straight pollen…
Below is a list of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids that we use in Custom Bee Feed. We maintain a crude protein percentage of 37%. Natural Pollen is used as an attractant so the bees are drawn to it.
