However today was a great pollen day and collected quite a bit, I am not sure if I will sell it or keep it to feed back to them in the spring.
The benefits of pollen can be found here
It seemed to take about a week for them to catch on that they have to go through the pollen trap to get into the hive. I will take pictures when the sun comes back but for now here are some pictures that are not mine but they give you an idea what a trap looks like. It does not hurt the bees in any way and other than a week of frustration they go about their daily business. The trap does not remove all the pollen from the bee but just some of it.
