I have a sundance bottom pollen trap. When I opened the drawer to empty the pollen tonight, the drawer was full of bees. It is around 90 degrees and very humid. The bees were bearding on the front as well as covering the outside of the drawer on the side. Is it normal for bees to be inside the pollen trap? I have never noticed any inside it before.

I agree with Michael Bush. It sounds as if you might have emptied the drawer before, and bees were not there. If so, I'd be suspicious of a crack remaining when you last shut the drawer. I've done that before...it doesn't take much of a space!
