A method of increasing production of bee-collected pollen

A method of increasing production of bee-collected pollen

Zhongguo Yangfeng (3): 13-14

The following method for maximizing the production of pollen is described. Rear a strong force of young foraging bees 45 days prior to the start of a pollen flow. Replace failing queens and provide adequate brood combs at the end of the previous honey flow. During pollen production locate the hive with its entrance facing southwest in order to avoid the heating of the metal pollen traps by morning sunshine (this would deter returning pollen foragers from entering).
