Bee Nutrition in the Spotlight –
Lately, bee nutrition has been the subject of extensive research due to scientists investigating some surprising new ideas.
Most beekeepers would have observed bees drinking from what we would consider dirty water sources. However, this may be filling a nutrition gap.
It seems we still have a lot to learn about bee health. In particular, what foods do bees really need, as well as what pollen sources actually provide the best nutrition value for a bee.
Lincoln University studies are showing the mineral content of pollen to be the key factor in enhancing and maintaining bee fitness.
