Changes in available natural flora have resulted in a very uneven flow of pollen and nectar with consequent increased impediment to population growth. A few apiarists have utilised protein supplements to provide a less erratic flow of substances required for brood production and colony longevity. Improved nutrition also has the potential to minimise bee diseases such as European foulbrood and Nosema where there is in-body competition for nutrients.
