Pollen substitute pattie is often fed in the spring to assist the build up and feeding of brood when foraging might otherwise be thin. I don't think that there is a limit, but if there is sufficient forage coming in it might be ignored. Suck it and see (I did and it tasted not bad)!

Do it alongside syrup feeding, it's a supplement.

My bees in the spring loved it, built up nice and strong and then . . . school fees, always have spare kit available for when you need it at short notice. :)
