pollen traps
« on: March 14, 2019, 10:33:50 pm »
I am looking for plans for a front entrance pollen traps. That will fit a 8 frame hive.. Just like the ones that brushy mountain bee farm use to sell. I would like to start collecting pollen to use later, to feed back to the bees.

Here are plans for the OAC pollen trap. you can modify it to fit a 8 frame hive. I have also modified then so the tray can be removed from the front. I do not know how they will work with the Small Hive Beatles, may need to pull the pollen every day and freeze it to keep the little buggers at bay.
