Collecting Pollen


#1

Hello Matt

I’m half way through a beekeeping course here in NZ which I’m loving and am still feeling pretty strong about getting myself set up with a top bar hive. I’m interested to find out if it possible to collect pollen from a TBH? Do you know if pollen traps have been designed for TBH’s?

Many thanks

Anna

Anna,

Thanks for your post! While I’m not aware of any pollen traps designed specifically for top bar hives, depending on your entrance design, many Langstroth pollen traps could probably fit properly without much difficulty. I’d look at your local beekeeping suppliers and see what kind of traps they have and then make sure your entrance(s) are designed so they’ll fit!

Best,

Matt
