HONEY B HEALTHY is a Non-GMO emulsion that HELPS PROMOTE HEALTHY, VIGOROUS HIVES when used as a feeding stimulant for late winter, early spring, fall or during dearths of nectar. Also, add HONEY B HEALTHY to your feeding mix to help build up packages, nucs and swarms. For a minimal cost per treatment, many commercial and hobbyist beekeepers are using HONEY B HEALTHY as a cost-effective way to keep their colonies strong, healthy and vigorous. HONEY B HEALTHY helps calm honey bees when used as a spray. Spraying honey bees helps prevent fighting when combining nucs, swarms and colonies. When sprayed on new wax or plastic foundation, HONEY B HEALTHY helps encourage the bees to draw out the foundation. To use HONEY B HEALTHY as a spray to calm the bees instead of smoke, use 4 teaspoons per quart 1:1 sugar-water mix. Some beekeepers use a method of applying HONEY B HEALTHY calling it the “Drench” method. Apply one cup (8 oz. more or less depending on the size of the colony) of the mix to the brood area by spraying or drizzling the mix on the bees and between the brood frames. They use this force-feeding method three to four times, three to four days apart on failing colonies. HONEY B HEALTHY can be mixed into sugar-water solutions ahead of time and fed when needed. The HONEY B HEALTHY solution mix should be kept in a tightly sealed container when stored for an extended period of time. To insure even distribution of essential oils after storage, shake or stir before applying to hive feeders. Since essential oils are volatile and may evaporate from open containers and open feeders, closed-type feeders are recommended unless consumption by the bees is rapid. If feeding in open barrels, feed during times of nectar dearth when there is a rapid consumption of the mix by the bees.
