    The best isn't a front fitted pollen trap... it's a Sundance... so I don't know what to tell you.

    Agree with Mr Bush. If you MUST go with a front mount, the cheap plasic front ones do collect pollen, as well as almost everything else that passes through the front of the hive.

    Ok thanks, is it easy to get the girls to use the top entrance? I would only like to use it for a few days a week? Is it easy to install?
