Pollen is the male germ cell produced by all flowering plants for fertilization and plant embryo formation. Flower pollen collects on the legs and bodies of worker bees. Sometimes it can also include nectar and bee saliva. Pollen comes from many plants, so the contents of bee pollen can vary significantly depending on the region where it was collected. Bees can collect as much as 65 lbs. of pollen per year, per hive. The honeybee uses pollen as a protein rich source of food.
This all plastic, front-mounted pollen trap is ideal for someone who wants to occasionally collect small amounts of pollen. It mounts on front of a standard 10 frame wooden hives. Please note, this trap is not designed to fit Beemax or 8 frame equipment.
