I an interested in hearing about your experience with pollen traps. I put one on the hive entrance this morning. The girls do not seem to be going back into the hive. It's been in place for a full 12 hours. I now have an 8-inch round cluster of bees hanging at the front of the hive, at the bottom of the pollen trap. I am concerned and I'm thinking perhaps I should not have disturbed the girls. This is a very strong hive with no issues, and I don't want to induce any kind of stress. I don't know if the girls are going to accept it. How do I know if I should leave it on or scrape the whole idea. Thoughts, opinions, ideas, and shared experiences, please!
