Do they work? Are they really any different than a queen excluder other than the location of it? My bees are really good at gathering it, I figure I might as well harvest it and get paid for it.

Ok, thanks.

How do you remove the propolis from a screen door screen?

>How do you remove the propolis from a screen door screen?

Roll it up, put a rubber band on it, put that in a large garbage bag in the freezer. When you unroll it (still in the garbage bag) the propolis all pops off because it's brittle. The same method you use for a propolis trap...

Is there a particular time of year that you put the propolis traps on? I assume you would not want them on while the nectar flow is on? Maybe sometime after you pull your honey supers for the year? Any advice on how to harvest propolis with traps (timing, season, etc.) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
