    Default Pollen Traps- Side Opening

    I'm looking to run about 6-10 pollen traps this year for queen rearing and pollen sales.

    I will be placing hives on 4 way pallets this year, so I'm looking at side opening pollen traps.

    The two I'm considering are the Sundance II Side Opening and the ML Superior.

    Anybody have experience with these two pollen traps? Or if your using something else, I would be intrested in hearing about it.

    Thanks, Rich

    I run 120 Sundance 100 back opening 20 side open on pallets very happy with clean pollen
    Bottom Traps only Sundance Top traps worthless

    Tried 3 of the ML sides for 2 years and were a joke lots crap falling thru and STUPID clear plastic escape tubes always falling out

    Bee Pollen is very profitable but is a full time job in volume collections then drying

    I'm on 4 way pallets too so I need side emptying traps. After researching quite a few my money is on the Sundance IIs bottom mount traps.
