Hopefully the user named Phoebee will see this. He mentioned awhile ago that he had seen (and perhaps built for himself) a passive dead-bee collection device that is used in academic or commercial (ag chemical/pharma-type) situations to monitor dead bees and larva brought out of the nest. If he doesn't comment, you could PM him and ask him about it.
