    Default What type of pollen is this?

    The bees have been coming into the hive covered with this pollen for the past few days. I'm in Massachusetts. Anybody know what plant this pollen is from? Skunk Cabbage?

    This is cool. http://pollen.com/allergy-weather-forecast.asp put in your zip code. It will tell you what is producing the most pollen. Then you can look up that tree or bush on the wiki source provided by honeyman to help cross reference.

    Here in southern Vt. my bees have been bringing in a light yellow pollen, too. My neighbor just cut down a small poplar tree that had catkins developing in the topmost branches. I'm pretty sure this is the source of the pollen the bees are currently finding. I took some pictures of the poplar catkins......

    this is how they start out....



    ......then open further, giving off the pollen...
