Easy to use

ApisPlus™ should be used 3-6 times a year from the first cleaning flight to the end of feeding, preferably after each generation change in the bee colony.

3 ways of use

ApisPlus™ is fed to bees together with sugar syrup, or inverted sugar syrup. ApisPlus™ is recommended to be used throughout the season and for each generation of bees in order to achieve population growth and to maintain better health of colonies. The product can also be used during the foraging period. ApisPlus™ has no grace period.

ApisPlus™ must not be added if the syrup temperature is above 40 °C (104 °F).

SPRAYING AND POURING
ApisPlus™ should be added to a cooled sugar syrup with 1:1 sugar to water ratio. The product should be added gradually to the syrup while stirring continuously, until a clear, yellow color is achieved.

FEEDING
ApisPlus™ should be added to a cooled sugar syrup with 3:2 sugar to water ratio. The product should be added gradually to the syrup while stirring continuously, until a clear, yellow color is achieved.

pouring

ApisPlus™ can be spread in between the frames

Spreading in the spaces between the frames. It can be performed with a syringe. Typically, 5-10 ml (0.17 – 0.34 fl oz) of syrup mixture per frame.


spraying

ApisPlus™ can be sprayed
on the bees on the frames

Spraying on the bees on the frames. It can be performed using a garden sprayer. Typically, 5-10 ml (0.17 – 0.34 fl oz) of syrup mixture per frame.


feeding

ApisPlus™ can be fed to bees together with syrup

Pouring into the feeders. Typically, one colony should be fed 150-500 ml (5-17 fl oz) of syrup mixture.

Easy prolonged storage

ApisPlus™ can be stored up to 2 years from the production date.

Once ApisPlus™ is mixed with the sugar syrup, the mixture should be used within 21 days. In such case unused mixture must be kept in closed container in 2-8 °C (35-46 °F).
