Excellent value for money
According to studies, feeding HiveAlive activated syrup in autumn and spring results in a population increase of 89% and an increase in honey yields of 40%. This means increased nuc and package production as well as increased returns from additional honey sales.
Natural, Active Ingredients
HiveAlive was developed specifically for honeybee health and contains a unique blend of seaweed extracts as well as thymol and lemongrass oil.
Increase colony populations
Year on year, colonies treated with HiveAlive™ are stronger, more productive and are better able to defend against disease. Feeding HiveAlive also reduces overwinter mortality and maintains low disease levels.
Promote Intestinal Well-being
Seaweeds have been shown to possess prebiotic activity meaning they have the ability to promote the growth of beneficial/probiotic bacteria found in the gut. Seaweeds also exert a protective effect on the gut, allowing increased protection from pathogens such as Nosema. Trials show reduced Nosema spore levels when HiveAlive is fed.
Easy to use
HiveAlive can be added to syrup, candy or patties for feeding to bees. It can also be added to syrup for drenching colonies.
Prevents Syrup From Fermenting
Syrup with HiveAlive added can be stored until next season without fermenting. In addition, syrup fed to hives that is not consumed before winter comes will not ferment in frames or cause dysentery. HiveAlive activated syrup stored in frames will actually help clean the frames.
Aid New Queen Acceptance
Spray/drench the hive with HiveAlive activated syrup to aid new queen acceptance.
For a cleaner, healthier hive
Spray/Drench HiveAlive activated syrup for a cleaner, healthier hive and to revitalize bees underperforming, weak or not feeding, ideally once a week for 3 weeks to cover full breeding cycle. Spring is the best time to do this.
Limit bearding/absconding when introducing thymol based miticides
Feed HiveAlive activated syrup 1-2 weeks before administering thymol based miticides to limit the possibility of absconding/bearding.
