Pollen Trap – Mann Lake Superior 10fr
$175.50 incl. GST
A pollen trap is a device that fits over the hive entrance and forces returning foragers to crawl through small openings in order to enter the hive. The openings are so small that some of the pollen pellets are stripped from the bees’ legs and fall into a collection tray.
Superfood is a term used all too often these days, but pollen is truly deserving of the title. It is approximately 40% protein and is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. It contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body. Pollen from Western Australia is considered among the best in the world and can sell for over $100/kg.
The Mann Lake Superior Pollen Trap features a reversible drawer that can be used on either side of the pollen trap, allowing you to decide which side the drawer should slide out. Perfect for palletized hives. The Superior Pollen Trap fits below the brood chamber. Bees enter through the new Pollen Trap entrance, go through a screened area where the pollen falls off and is collected in a protected drawer below. Fits standard 10 frame equipment. Close off trap by pulling the tubes for 2-3 days every week to allow the bees to gather sufficient stores.
