    Made up 3 nukes 22 days ago.
    Took them 3 miles, have been feeding 1/1 syrup, brought them back home this morning.
    Sat Nuke boxes next to their hive boxes, intend to change them over tomorrow, bees orintateing [sp]them selfs today.

    My question;
    I have a few frozen pollen substitute patties, think it would help if I added one of them to each hive when I change them over to the hive boxes tommorrow ??

    [ I know thaw them first ! ] :roll:

    Thanks for Your time and consideration.

    May help, may not. Won't hurt.

    You may want to start with 1/3 to 1/4 patty each to see if they use them.
    If you have SHB in the area, remove them after 7 days.
