    Kelley and Simpson both sell wire for pollen traps. You need 5 mesh to strip the pollen from the bee legs, 7 mesh to prevent the bees from getting into the collecting drawer, and either 7 or 8 mesh to put on the bottom of the trap so mice don't get in during the winter.

    We have tried 6 mesh and in our opinion 6 mesh has no place in a well designed trap.

    Best of luck,
