    Default queenrite hive and pollen

    Hello
    I dont recall where or when i read it, but i thought i read somewhere that the bees will only bring pollen into a hive that has a laying queen.
    Is this true or a false..? I cant seem to find anything about this doing searches.

    It's false, they may not bring in as much pollen as a queenright hive, but they will bring it. John

    False, when I pull queens from the mating nucs the queenless ones will often be bringing in as much pollen as the queenright ones.
