Tonic feeding of bees with the bag method!!! Video

Stimulating feeding of our bees with syrup in order to fool the queens so that they make many eggs.
Stimulating power supply we have seen is done with commercial feeders that are ceiling, frame, and input !!!
But beekeepers have devised their own ways and fed with saucers, and bottles.
Today you will see syrup on a nylon bag on a video.
The video is from Russia and the process is the following ...

We take a plastic bag disposable food.
Then cut a plastic bottle so that it fits into the amount of syrup we want to feed at a time, around 500 to 1000 ml, that is, we use it as a doser.

We put the plastic bag in the cut bottle and pour the syrup that we want inside.
Then we tighten the sachets tightly and put them in boxes for safe transport to the apiary.

Place the syrup pouch on the frames by opening some small holes in the top of the bag.
The process is complete, and our bees will safely take the syrup without choking.


Possibly a large amount of syrup, in small colonies, may mean that bees may be slow to get it and have several undesirable effects.

But this applies to all feeding methods

The dosage for the syrup can be in the winter with 2 sugar to 1 part water, the spring becomes 1 part sugar to 1 part water, and in the summer become 1 part sugar to 2 parts water, without being binding this, ie they can each change the dosage.

Watch the video below, which is from Russia.
