How Vita Feed Green helps
What is Vita Feed Green
Vita Feed Green is a liquid feed based on the essential oils of walnut, thyme, marjoram and wild marjoram. It stabilises the acidity (pH) of the bee gut to within the optimum range of 6.3 to 6.6, and offers wide-spectrum protection against harmful bacteria and fungi. It is also an anti-oxidant and helps reduce varroa and chalkbrood infestations.
When to use
Vita Feed Green can be used at any time of year: in spring and early summer it stimulates a sustained build-up of colonies, and in autumn it helps prepare bees for the winter.
How to use Vita Feed Green
Vita Feed Green is available in 250ml and one-litre bottles sufficient to treat 20 colonies. It should be applied as a 1% solution in sugar syrup or candy. It can be given in a single dose if the sugar feed is large enough, but it is usually more appropriate to spread the dose over several smaller daily or two-day feeds.
Vita Feed Green is available from the usual beekeeping suppliers and Vita distributors.
