These patties are approximately 1 pound each. They each measure 11.5 x 6 x 3/8".
Use for colonies that have run low on stores in the wintertime and those needing to feed in emergency situations. These carbohydrate patties contain sugar, Honey Bee Healthy and about 3% AP23 (protein). Two patties can be fed at a time when using standard 10 frame equipment. Can be fed throughout the winter months and into early spring when warm enough to open the hive. Not recommended for spring build-up purposes.
To feed, remove from sealed plastic bag and apply straight to the top bars; cut into fourths if needed to place the patty around the cluster. Leave the paper on the patty. The bees will remove it and carry it out the entrance of the hive. We recommend storing patties in the freezer (allow them to thaw approximately 24 hours before use). They can be stored frozen for up to 1 year.
Patties cannot be shipped outside of the United States.
