pH Test Paper
Our pH test paper is used to adjust the pH level of your feed. Typically honey has a pH of 4.5. Sugar water has a pH much closer to 7.0. Why is this important?
There are around 8000 microorganisms that live together with the honeybee in the colony. That is why the hive is called a “super organism”. These organisms rely on a stable pH environment just as humans do.
Adjusting your pH is simple. As you mix your 1 to 1 sugar water simply add Ascorbic Acid aka, Vitamin C, to your mixture until you achieve a 4.5 pH level.
