We all want to find something that can help our honey bees winter better.
I've been evaluation Hive Alive as an additive to sugar-syrup when starting a new swarm or package of honey bees. There has been a noted reduction in nosema spores.
There may be other benefits to using Hive Alive.
I will continue to test, compare, and share results.
Starting in the winter of 2021, through 2022, I have HiveAlive Fondant on 50% of my honey bee colonies as an emergency resource. I will be sharing the results of this observation during the spring of 2022. My observations will include nosema spore count results.
Frederick Dunn interviewed Hive Alive Inventor/Creator Dara Scott on 2/3/2022
It was the first day that Hive Alive released their pollen patties (Global Patties) for pre-purchase.
There was a reference to Randy Oliver's studies at ScientificBeekeeping.com
