Bees vitaplus

Lee S. Rosen at Istanbul

Lee S. Rosen Miami – BeesVita Plus, a nutritional system supposed to bolster honey bees’ immune systems, strengthen their resistance to pesticides, and improve their overall health.

“We now have a scientific formulation that provides us with a fighting chance to combat environmental and man-made forces that are attacking colonies,” said Philip McCabe, president of the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations.

BeesVita Plus is an all-natural, organic, anti-oxidant-rich, pre-packaged dietary supplement patty that is placed in honey bee colonies. Honey bees eating BeesVita Plus, as opposed to typical sugar water solutions fed by most beekeepers, receive precise amounts of essential nutrients and antioxidants that improve health.

BeesVita Plus is being tested out-in-the-field and in laboratories by the United States Department of Agriculture, by domestic and foreign university biologists and at agricultural research centers in America, Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Turkey and by beekeepers in California, Florida, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

According to Federation statistics described at Apimondia, honey bee colony losses in some countries are as high as 60 percent. The global average is about 20 percent. In the United States, losses range from 28 to 59 percent.

“Around the world, honey bee colony loss is a pandemic; millions of honey bees are dying,” explains Lee Rosen, Chairman and CEO of West Palm Beach, Florida-based Healthy Bees, LLC, maker of BeesVita Plus.

“No one knows the cause, but clearly nutrition plays an important role,” he said.

Many beekeepers, especially during the winter months, when pollen and nectar are non-existent, feed their hives sugar-water or handmade sugar cakes as a replacement.

“These are ineffective carbohydrate mixtures composed of sugar that are void of scientifically-formulated essential nutrients and anti-oxidants found in BeesVitaPlus,” said Lee S. Rosen.

He also emphasizes, “Beekeepers complain they spend excessive time and labor making bee feed and then serving it to the colonies. Beekeepers tell us they need an easy-to-use pre-packaged product that provides proper and effective nutrition.”

The product is sold in pre-packaged 800-gram patties, and in varying size bags of water-soluble powder-mix.

Lee S. Rosen Miami –  While the Beekeeping industry accounts for less than 1.0% of revenue for the animal farming sector, its trends do not stray far from the sector’s overall performance. Domestic and global weather conditions, import competition and the incidence of disease have defined revenue and production volumes during the five years to 2015.

Lee S. Rosen – Meanwhile, reduced domestic production left the remaining demand to be filled by imported honey. The value of imports grew at an average annual rate of 15.0% over the five years to 2013 to total $496.9 million, replacing domestic product with lower-priced foreign honey; imports currently satisfy an estimated 63.9% of domestic demand.

Still, aside from bees’ use in honey production, they also serve another market, pollination for agricultural crops. Reduced bee colony numbers have led the prices paid by farmers for pollination to skyrocket. As a result, a number of players have entered the industry to cash in on this growing market; enterprises have grown an annualized 3.3% to 5,001 in the five years to 2013.

Lee S. Rosen – Over the five years to 2018, more affordable imports will continue to replace domestic products; as a result, imports are expected to grow. However, US beekeepers will likely market their products for new activities in the near future. “Honey and bees are already used in medicine developments and for pollination services to crop farmers”. These markets are expected to expand and very competitive over the next five years, keeping the US Beekeeping industry afloat.

It is one of the most enjoyable types of businesses out there. The honey bee extracts honey from its natural surroundings and then converts it into something that is consumable. In addition, honey bees help to pollinate the vegetables and fruits in one’s area. The following are some of the aspects involving honey bee farming.

How Do Bee Farms Work?

Bee farms raise bees. They collect and gather honey, sell bees, royal jelly, bees’ wax, propolis, pollen, bee venom and other bee products. Most beekeepers maintain hives for honey, but bees also produce other useful products. Beeswax from cell caps and old combs is used for high-quality candles, pharmaceuticals, lotions, and friction-reducing waxes for skis and surfboards. As well as honey, several other bee products are sources of food for humans. Bee brood (young bees that are housed in the brood comb of a hive) is consumed as a form of meat in many non-European countries.
