I am trying to free up some of my frames that have pollen in them. I just tried to spray the pollen out and got only a few cells done. How do I do it so that it's more efficient?

I have some nucs coming and would like to use some of the better frames that have some sections of pollen in them. Would the bees remove the pollen? I didn't think they did.

Thanks!

They will use it and in the process remove it. They don't ever seem to just remove it or move it. I'd just leave it, but if you really want to free it up, soak the frames until the pollen is liquid and then give it to the bees. It will ruin the pollen and at the same time make it soft enough for them to remove it.
