Pollen Color Chart
« on: February 04, 2018, 12:45:44 pm »
Some time back, we had link on this forum for a pollen color chart. I don't remember if that chart was state specific, or even better county specific. Do we have any info like that on this forum. We are having a ridiculously early spring and our bee club is wanting to know more.

I've checked our best agriculture source, University of California Davis, and surprisingly there isn't a pollen color chart available there.

Neil, are they worth purchasing or can someone just stick to the online version?

I didn't buy it. Just copied and pasted it as a jpeg if memory serves. It would be nice to help support the work they have done. At the time I was poorer than a church mouse. Now its more like a cathedral mouse. :)
