Apiculture Revolutionized... utilizing Nature’s own solution!

Updated: Nov 21, 2023

Guest Post by M and Dale Brown of Buzzville Apiary, Langdon New Hampshire

Increasing awareness through scientific study has opened an opportunity for apiculturists, from home enthusiasts to commercial and migratory keepers, to explore and learn about a fresh approach, to further improve their existing Hive management practices.

Let us introduce you to Fulvic Acid...

Components derived from ancient stores deep within Nature’s pantry, the result of microbiological processes of decomposing organic matter, offer valuable micronutrients that cannot be replicated by any other means.

The Science

Fulvic Acid, has recently come to light in several studies as having potential benefits regarding Bee vitality with increased reproduction, contributing to the overall success of The Colony as a whole. As an example, promising evidence is outlined in an article published by IOP conference series: Earth and Environmental Science Apicultural products, environmentally friendly due to organic extra nutrition - IOPscience

We encourage exploring the wealth of knowledge our digital world offers, to complement the ever-growing need as beekeepers, to be proactive and seek out innovative new ideas.

Fulvic Acid and Beekeeping

While fulvic acid, part of the humic family, is known to have various applications in the field of supplements, it is important to note that its effects and applications are still being studied. Fulvic acid, emerging as a versatile mediator in many fields of agriculture and livestock farming, as well as contributing multiple environmental benefits, is also symbiotically influencing our ecosystems through a valued contributing member, Apis mellifera, the Honeybee.

Fulvic Acid is generally believed to:

  • Increase bioavailability of nutrients

  • Aid the immune system.

  • Stimulate energy production.

  • Biologically chelate pollutants such as pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals

  • Natural antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal

With this general information, would it be worthwhile to consider supplementing current Hive Management practices?

Consider the potential benefits:

  • Healthy bees are more active and work harder in the field and in the hive.

  • Strong immune systems are key to defending against the environmental and physiological problems plaguing apiculturists today.

  • Stamina to build a resilient, self-sustaining colony, improving the organization of hives.

  • Heightened energy for Hygienic behaviors and Allo-grooming, reducing the presence of pests that transmit disease

  • Foraging ability to gather vital nutrients. Increased brood production and population of bees

  • Binding with and helping to reduce environmental pollutants.

  • Productivity, with ample food stored, and honey production with higher yields.

  • Longer life expectancy

  • Better Pollination environmentally

In conclusion,

Managed honeybee colonies globally, have declined at a rate of 30-40% annually in recent years. Environmental toxins weaken bees, they then become susceptible to further damage from disease and parasites. Pesticides and land use changes are all factors contributing to a global problem. The health of bee populations is critical to a global food supply. Bee populations represent a litmus test for the condition of our planet.

HELP... for our precious pollinators is on the horizon!

Fulvic acid presents a golden opportunity for beekeepers searching for innovative solutions to assist with a global issue, while enhancing their beekeeping efforts. Learning about and understanding the benefits of fulvic acid, you can unlock the full potential in your Apiary. Consider reaching out to your local beekeeping community or joining an online beekeeping forum for further study and discussion. Learn about different methods of hive management, while sharing your own. Consulting with a bee professional may also provide additional knowledge, with recommendations.
