HiveAlive: complementary feed for honeybees

Field trials show that Hive Alive increases colony population, maintains honeybee gut health, increases honey production and improves over-winter success.

Hive Alive is sold in over 30 countries worldwide and has been fed to over 3.5 million hives. Approximately 45% of New Zealand's colonies are being fed Hive Alive.

Extensive studies have been carried out on Hive Alive, some of these results have been published in the Journal of Apicultural Research.

Proven population increase: Results from international studies show that feeding Hive Alive in syrup leads to an 89% increase in colony population compared to control.

Proven honey production increase: Studies that monitored honey stores in test colonies found that feeding Hive Alive resulted in a 40% increase in honey production compared to control.

Seaweed protects bees 


HiveAlive contains an exclusive blend of seaweed extracts, some of which are only found on the shores of Ireland.

These seaweed extracts were scientifically selected for honeybee health for the following benefits:

  • Maintain gut health
  • Support a healthy immune system
  • Cater to nutritional needs
  • Provide prebiotic activity

The seaweeds extracts were subsequently formulated with thymol and lemongrass.
