Pollen Trap and our first pollen harvest!

    As I learn more about beekeeping, I have been researching the benefits of bee pollen or "bee bread", so I decided to purchase a pollen trap to put under my bees..
It took them a while to learn how to get into the new entrance, but within a few hours they figured it out...

The pollen trap has a slide out tray on the side of the hive that catches the pollen they drop... 
and here is our first harvest of bee pollen, not bad for two days. The picture doesn't do it justice but there are so many different colors of pollen, it was quite a beautiful show of natural colors.
