Gordon Wardell, president of SAFE R&D LLC in Tucson, spent four years researching the right concoction to give nature's little workers some extra pep. A solution is critical, he said, because beekeepers worry their bees aren't going to be adequate pollinators. "We want to make bees healthier and live longer," said Wardell, who is in a cooperative research agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Carl Hayden Bee Research Center in Tucson.
And while scientists have tried to find the "smoking gun" that causes the disorder, Wardell believes it could be a symptom of poor nutrition. The paradigm for beekeeping has changed in the last 20 years, Wardell said.

HONEYBEE RESEARCHER Gordon Wardell, president of S.A.F.E. Research & Development, LLC, is ready to produce MegaBee, a bee supplement developed through a cooperative research and develop agreement with the USDA-ARS's Carl Hayden Bee Research Center.
"We've worked with Gordon Wardell, who offers expertise in honeybee nutrition and microbiology.We have expertise in honeybee crop pollination and chemistry, so we partnered to create this diet."
Wardell, the creative partner, purchased MegaBee licensing rights from the government, DeGrandi-Hoffman says.
In his research, Wardell says, "I asked the bees" what they wanted to eat.
"I put dishes of food on a table.
Pound for pound, the supplement is more digestible than natural pollen, Wardell says.
"In Bakersfield we found, for a pound of product going in, that we had more square inches of brood coming out- even more so than with natural pollen.
