What do you all do about squirrels getting into your pollen traps? I guess we may have to switch to bottom board traps but if you have any suggestions for squirrel problems with entrance traps it would be nice.
We've got quite a few black pellets coming in with pollen collected early summer at the same time as the birches bloom. The hives are in a lowbush blueberry field, sandy soils, surrounded by boreal forest but the bees have access to a bog also. The pollen is small, about the size of willow pollen, looks like tiny lemons under the scope but on some of the grains you can see a third pore. Our scope is not too hot so that's about all I can give for information. Anyone know what type of pollen this might be?
