I bought some of Mann Lake's Ultra Bee pollen substitute earlier in the winter. I had planned to make pollen patties to feed the bees, but after thinking it over I decided I didn't really want to make patties with high fructose corn syrup, which is what the Mann Lake recipe calls for. Now there may be other recipes out there that don't call for hfcs, but after some reading I thought I'd give dry feeding a try. I looked at various feeders, and probably didn't go with the simplest one out there but this one didn't take much to make either, though it was a little pricey.
