Feeding your bees a pollen substitute in the early spring is a sure-fire way to stimulate egg laying in the queen, boost brood production and ensure a strong, productive colony. Our Pollen Booster is an easy way to give your bees the protein they need in the spring. Contains ground, toasted soy beans, and sugars. Just mix the dry powder with water, form into patties, and place patties on the top bars of the brood chamber. You get four 16-ounce packets of Pollen Booster -- that's enough for eight feedings.
