    Default propolis colection

    Can anyone tell me what is a reasonable expectation in lbs or oz's for propolis collection per colony a year? Im sure location is a factor when it comes to quantity if actually trying to produce it. I have forest near all my yards so I dont think a lack of it would ever be an issue.

    I am thinking about collecting and selling if your wondering.

    John Pluta has a vid on youtube and tells you about how many oz per trap he collects at a given time. I can't remember offhand but it's a fair amount if the trap is filled (few oz)

    He has a vid on propolis traps too and pollen traps. The propolis traps are the screens (kind of like queen excluder) on top of the hive. I should just do it the easy way....
