We are proud to carry Ultra Bee patties, which are widely trusted to provide a range of necessary amino acids and other nutrients, with a high consumption rate by the bees. We use these patties to fatten our own bees before winter and in early spring, when natural food sources are scarce. Stores well in the freezer for later use. Helpful tip: use a rolling pin to slightly flatten the patty before placing in your hive. This allows your hive boxes to fit together properly. Each individual patty is 1 lb.
