Suffolk Beekeepers' Association
The price of bulk feed this year is going to be cheaper than last year as the price of European sourced sugar products is down and considerably cheaper than Thornes' bulk price. We ask you to complete the order request form so that we can correctly gauge the bulk requirement. A payment request will be sent to you by email mid-July once the £ has steadied and we get confirmed final prices from the supplier.
The order can only be in kg (rule of thumb - an Ambrosia can when over full holds about 14 kg or 10 litres but we suggest you just fill to 13kg). The amount of stores required by a colony is about 18 - 22 kg of honey or feed substitute to get it through the winter. Larger hives headed by prolific queens may require more. When full a BS brood frame contains about 2.2 kg of honey, so assess the existing colony stores and feed the required balance.
The collection of bee feed this year from Deben View, Back Lane, FALKENHAM. IP10 0TL is either Sat 4th or 18th August 2018 between 9.00am to 3.00pm (except for big orders over 200kg please make an arrangement with David Adams to pick up).
