Bumblebee feeding: sugar

Bumblebees require pollen as a protein source for the build-up of the colony. They also need nectar as a carbohydrate (sugar) source. Since the flowers of certain plants (e.g. tomatoes) do not produce sufficient or any nectar, the colony needs to be provided with a sugar solution.

BIOGLUC® is a ready-to-use sugar solution in a bottle of 2.1 kg, sufficient for the entire activity span of a colony. In exceptional cases, such as hives which develop extreme large colonies or longer activity span, the bottle can run empty earlier than expected and need be replaced by a new one.

Local regulations may impose restrictions on the use of this product. Contact your authorities or contact your Biobest consultant.
