    Can you feed megabee anytime of the year (even if pollen is plentiful?) or best early spring and autumn? I have new hives and wanted to know if now would be acceptable?

    when you use it dry,there isnt much waste,and youll find that the mega bee will boost your colonies and and you will notice more bees per box

    do you feed dry more as a community feeder or still place in hive?

    I am in humid GA... I am sure its the same where you are, only 400 miles apart...

    i use it in every hive,not much at a time,maybe a half cup at a time,its easy to check because all you have to do is lift the top

    megabee is made in arizona by castle dome solutions,also known as the tucson bee diet.

    nutritional analysis,
    protein 46%
    lipid 3%
    fiber 13%
    they recommend mixing with high fructose sugar to make patties but i use it dry.
    i bought my bag from dadant
