- Winter Patties will provide your colonies with emergency food stores that are often needed as spring approaches and the bees find the cupboards bare. Winter patties provide carbohydrates, little protein, so your bees won't be encouraged to start rearing brood too early. As warmer weather approaches switch to a pollen patties which will provide both carbohydrates and protein for brood rearing.
We also believe adding a Super DFM Probiotic patty will make a healthier hive also.
