Question for increasing fall Bees population.
New bee keeper posting another question.
My bee population has decreased some. I'm not sure if this is natural due to the time of year or possibly mites. Or maybe both.
I'm about to treat my hive with Hopguard 3. From my understanding this can stall the queen from laying.
I'm wondering, can I feed them a pollen patty to help boost population growth for the approaching cooler weather?
