  • What is a feeder rim? Can you mix pollen or bee pro with the candy to give the bees extra protein when their pollen stores are low?

    • Pamela,

      A feeder rim is an eke about 2- to 3-inches deep. You can mix pollen substitute with candy, but don’t do it too early in the year. In northern areas, waiting until after the winter solstice is a good idea.
