AgriSea Bee Nutrition provides key nutrition to support healthy hives year round. We supply all 10 essential amino acids and a range of trace elements + minerals bees require to grow and reproduce.
Eight other non-essential amino acids offers additional nutrients which stressed hives can no longer self produce. The complex balance of Vitamins B and C ( B2, B3, B5, B9, B12) in AgriSea Bee Nutrition are essential for brood rearing. We also provide carbohydrates which bees require for energy, as well as lipids for hormone development.
Bees require a complex mix of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, fats and minerals to ensure they can continue to carry out their work and with the demands of the horticultural industry and honey production increasing, ensuring your hives have all they need is more important than ever. The demands for honey production and crop pollination are increasing, and with this comes an increased risk to the health of bees. The honey bee requires proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, fats, and minerals in their diet to survive and thrive. Nutrient deﬁciencies from increased demand on natural ﬂoral resources impacts the bees ability to carry out its individual role in the hive- reducing overall health and productivity.
Other benefits of the AgriSea Bee Nutrition range include:
AgriSea Bee Nutrition is a scientiﬁcally formulated and industry trialled nutritional supplement which supports healthy hives year round. Our product was formulated from our own product development trials, feedback from beekeepers, advice from industry experts, and expertise from scientists. The end result is a combination of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements that bees need to survive and thrive. The naturally chelated form of these ingredients enhances their bioavailability to the gut of the bee.
