These patties are approximately 1 lb. each. The 40 lb. box contains approximately 40 - 1 lb. patties.
For those colonies running light on stores and those needing to feed in emergency situations. These carbohydrate patties contain sugar, AP23 and Honey Bee Healthy and run around 3% protein. 3-4 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.
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.
