A friend recently got into the beekeeping business and offered what seems like an unlimited supply of dead bees. Each colony has a natural mortality of 10s of thousands per month.
I'm sure that the fish in my system has snacked on the occasional arrant bee with no known adverse effects But does anyone know if the stinger and venom should be removed before offering a large number either whole or mashed/processed to the fish in our systems? I should add that I raise trout and catfish and am interested in adding crayfish.
Thanks in advance for advice, info, and thoughts.
