Ambrosia bee food syrup is a liquid, ready-to-use bee food with a balanced spectrum of sugar types (fructose, glucose, sucrose) and a base of the purest beet sugar. The high proportion of fructose prevents crystals from forming in the honeycombs.The high concentration of sugar makes the syrup resistant to microbiological spoilage. The ideal composition of the sugar type spectrum ensures that bees can make optimal use of the nutrients. The nutrient concentration / feed value is about 72,7%. 1 kg (or 1 litre) of ambrosia bee food syrup corresponds to 0,73 kg of crystallised sugar.ambrosia bee food syrup is especially beneficial for early and late winter feeding: Its special recipe means the food is as close as possible to natural bee food Easy intake and utilisation – lower inversion effort protects the bee’s energy balance. Tests have shown energy benefits of about 15%. High resistance to microbiological spoilage results in a longer shelf life Hygienic, time-saving and easy to use to prevent robbing, liquid food should be offered inside the hive only – avoid spilling food on the outside of the hive if possible, feeding should take place in the evening. Reduce entrance holes of nucleus colonies to a few centimetres.
