Extra Power (96714) is an advanced and enhanced configuration of Standard (90114) containing greater amounts of substitutes of pollen, trace elements, and amino acids of high biological value. Thus, it is an excellent pollen substitute that achieves what Standard (90114) doesand additionally achieves:
• Greater and faster increase of bee colonies even if there is no pollen in the environment, provided that the other preconditions for the queen bee to give birth are met (such as nectar or stimulant supply etc.)
Effects and results:
• Maintains your bee colonies in an excellent condition
• An enormous increase of their population even if there is no pollenin the environment and the other preconditions for the queen bee to give birth are met (such as nectar or stimulant supply etc.)
• The bees become more productive and thus the production of honey is also increased
The result is bigger and more productive bee colonies
BeeNectar provides five different high-quality solid bee foods that are customized to the needs of your bee colonies giving the opportunity to the beekeeper to choose among foods that can be used to maintain, grow and fight against serious diseases* or a combination of them. Each food type consists of sugars enriched with vitamins, proteins and trace elements that vary in consistency depending on the purpose of use (maintenance, growth, combat serious diseases) ensuring a complete and balanced diet. This allows the beekeeper to build bee colonies able to produce any bee product (honey, pollen, propolis, etc.).
*BeeNectar solid bee foods strengthen the bees and their immune system, making them capable of fighting against Varroa, Nosema and Ascosphaera pathogens without medicines
BeeNectar’s specialized solid bee foods should be placed in the center of the hive and specifically on the top of the brood populated hive frames, opening a large hole at the nylon pack, without the fear of drying out. When the temperature of the environment is below 22-25oC, the opening must face downwards (towards the frames), whereas when the temperature is over 22-25oC, the opening must face upwards (towards the lid).
The solid foods, especially Standard (90114), VN-Power (93414) and A-Extra Power (92619), should not be used when the beehive cover is not properly insulated and there is danger that the temperature under the cover is above 38oC (especially when it is covered with metal sheet). In those cases (high temperature and absence of insulator), it is preferable to use VN-Extra Power (96614) and Extra Power (96714).
Available in packages of 1kg packed in boxes that contain 24 pieces. The dimension of each box is 55cm x 27,1cm x 15,7cm.

Advantages in comparison to other foods on the market
Thanks to Extra Power (96714) appropriate consistency, there will be an enormous increase of thepopulation of the existing healthy bee colonies.
Placement of 1kg per 10 populated hive frames once a week is recommended. However, more than 1kg can be placed at a time when it is not possible to visit the apiary on a weekly basis.
If the bee colonies are very weak due to a disease (Varroa, Nosemosis, Ascosphaera) you must choose another type of food that simultaneously fight against the disease(s) (VN-Extra Power, VN-Power, A-Extra Power) or follow the appropriate treatment in combination with Extra Power (96714)
