The possibility of improving the efficiency of beekeeping by providing proteinaceous feed lies, in part, in the development of an effective pollen substitute to feed the colonies when pollen is scarce (e.g. Zahra and Talal , 2008), especially in preparation for early nectar flows (Skubida et al., 2008). Providing proteinaceous feed to stimulate colony strength would then help, in… CONTINUE READING
