This one is for those who disliked the music and narration,
Same test, different camera, no narration or music as requested.

Test parameters:

Four- one quart honey bee feeders
All filled with the same 2 to 1 sugar to filtered water mix.
As marked, 2 of the 4 Bee Feeders have been thoroughly mixed with 1 teaspoon each of Honey B Healthy “Feeding Stimulant With Essential Oils”
Distributed by http://www.honeybhealthy.com

Our honey bees overwhelmingly preferred the 2 to 1 Sugar water mix that did not have the Honey B Healthy added.
After first consuming the sugar water, then they continued to feed on the sugar water with Honey B Healthy added.

What’s in Honey B Healthy?
From the bottle label:
“Sucrose, Water, Spearmint Oil, Lemon Grass Oil, and Lecithin.”

The 16 ounce bottle of Honey B Healthy for this test/demonstration was purchased on Amazon (see link at top of video description).
The purchase price was .50 plus shipping. Sold by Laura’s

The entry feeders shown in this video are also sold on Amazon
I hope someone else lists these drinkers on Amazon as the current seller has overpriced them and is charging a lot for shipping, Prime shipping not available. IF someone out there starts selling these drinkers on Amazon with Prime, I will change my links asap.

There have been no published scientific studies regarding the health claims of additives such as Honey B Healthy or Pro Health bee feed stimulants that I was able to find. If there are any more warm days to be had this season, I will also be testing Pro Health.

IF you know of a viable study which has been done or is ongoing, please feel free to post your link in the comments.
