How Caspian Solution works...
A combination of drone and larval pheromones along with royal jelly are the key ingredients within Caspian Solution. Boosting the level of pheromones present in the hive stimulates the bees to consume large amounts of pollen and honey, and therefore stimulates the hypo pharyngeal and mandibular glands to produce large amounts or worker and royal jelly. This powerful effect gives the Caspian Solution many uses.

Recipe for Caspian Solution
To make 10L of Caspian Solution (Cost: $1/litre)
25 grams of Caspian solution (approx. 5 teaspoons)
10 cups (2.5 litres) of 2:1 Sugar syrup, or 10 gallons of 2:1 syrup
140 grams (approx ¾ cup) pollen
150ml ( ½ cup+) of honey (if you don’t have honey use 5 tbsp of lemon Juice)
1 litre of warm water
For 1 drench treatment or 1 gallon of syrup.
2.5 grams of Caspian (approx. ½ tsp)
I cup of sugar syrup 2:1 as a drench, or in a frame feeder full of 2:1 syrup
14 grams (approx 4 tsp) of pollen
30ml (2 tbsp) of honey, or 2 tsp of lemon juice (if you don’t have honey)
½ cup of warm water
Note: Increasing the quantity of pollen or honey will not have any side effects on the effectiveness of the Caspian Solution. These ingredients are present to facilitate the delivery of the pheromone and royal jelly to the bees’ digestive system and kick start the digestion of protein.
Add the Caspian Solution into the warm water and then mix in the pollen and honey. Mix well before adding this mixture into the mixed syrup. For best results feed Caspian Solution directly into empty comb, filling up the cells. This is especially useful in cold climates. Some of the solution can be poured in between the frames, lightly coating the bees and giving a calming effect.
