The 500ml bottle feeds 50 colonies and activates 52.8 gallons of syrup.
Hive Alive has been proven to maintain honeybee health, maintain gut health and improve over-winter success.
Extensive international field trial testing has been carried out on HiveAlive, some of these results have been published in the Journal of Apicultural Research.
Results from international field trials show that feeding HiveAlive leads to better nourished, healthier bees resulting in a natural increase in colony population and honey production.

What do beekeepers think about HiveAlive?
“We had a very wet Spring and had to feed longer than usual since the bees could not get out. So instead of just syrup and pollen patties we used HiveAlive this year in our syrup to help boost our hives. It has really made a Huge difference in our brood production. Our hives are full and we are seeing an astounding difference in our honey production this year already. I will definitely will be using when we feed over winter to help keep the colonies healthy."
“I have been very impressed with the product so far. I work closely with another local beekeeper and we generally follow similar treatment protocols. Early in the fall, both of us had losses of around 20 percent, but by late November, we noticed his hives were not as strong as mine, and he has since incurred greater losses. The one main difference in our operations: I use HiveAlive.”
Steve S., 200 colonies, Michigan, USA
"I swear by this product for building strong healthy hives. My mite counts have been extremely low as well on all my hives. This is the only product I have fed my bees for the past 2 years and will continue to do so going forward."
Elizabeth B, USA
"I contacted some of the bee keepers in my area (Southern Mountains of Colorado) to see how their colonies are building up. No one is seeing the colony build up like I am seeing with my colonies. But then again, no one else in the area is using HiveAlive."
D.M., Beekeeper, Colorado, USA
"When I first used it, it worked. I saw an eruption in hives the first spring I used it. Life expectancy is longer, they're stronger and they build up quickly. I'm using it 3 years."
Chris, Beekeeper, Maryland, USA
"I feed hive alive In fall to boost hive size going in to cold weather. It seems to strengthen the hive to handle colder weather. It’s important to make sure that the varroa count is at an acceptable level."
