    Cool Pollen traps

    So what is the best pollen trap on the market for use in big operations? Is it a bottom or a top hive trap?

    There was a study here a couple of years ago which involved analyzing pesticides in the pollen collected from traps.

    The inadvertently found out that the older galvanized type traps sampled pollen with levels of lead

    the next round of testing was done with new stainless steel pollen traps.
