Pollen Forecast

928 1
I find it curious that the weather channel website says that the pollen forecast for my area is high, but as I have watched my bees the last couple of days they have not started bringing in any pollen yet at all. I am inclined to believe that the bees are better at providing a pollen forecast than the weather channel.

The pollens that they are concerned about are allergy-producing pollens, which tend to be from wind-pollinated plants (as opposed to insect-pollinated, which the girls would be interested in). That said, I have NO idea how they "predict" pollen or how accurate it is.
