What is ProSweet?
Our Pro-Sweet Liquid Feed is a great choice for hobby beekeepers! Unlike sugar water, Pro-Sweet has both binomial (bees treat these like nectar) and monomial sugars (bees treat these like honey), so it not only stimulates the bees but helps them put on weight. Pro-Sweet won't crystallize or ferment like sugar water, sold in 5 gallon pails.
What is ProHealth?

  • Antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial which aids in the overall health of the bees
  • Helps build up packages, nucs and swarms when added to your feeding mix
