German term or phrase: beiproviantieren (proviantieren)
Translating a book on wasps, here are some examples:

"Dabei kann es vorkommen, dass die Wespe beiproviantiert, wenn die Larve schon geschlüpft ist.
"Es wurden in diesem Neste also insgesamt 8 Raupen beiproviantiert."
"Ein Nest, das gewiss beiproviantiert werden sollte, störte ich dadurch, dass ich die Larve herausholte."
"Die Wespe hat nicht nur während der raupenlosen Besuche, sondern auch bei den Proviantierbesuchen die Gelegenheit, sich vom Inhalt der Kammer zu überzeugen"
"Wenn es sich nun in solchen Fällen um einen späteren Proviantierbesuch handelte, verhielt die Wespe sich wie immer bei solch einem Besuch, betraf es aber den ersten Proviantierbesuch in einem Neste und befand sich nun in dem falschen Nest eine Raupe mit Ei"

Is it as simple as "provide"? Or is there a more technical term for this? Thank you!

agree  Cetacea: "beiproviantieren" is another of those completely unnecessary "doppelt-gemoppelten" German terms (like e.g. "vorprogrammieren"). In other words, it means exactly the same as "proviantieren".
