>What is the best pollen trap?

I'm sure I haven't tried all of them, and I'm sure there are new ones every day, but I've never seen anyone complain about a Sundance.  I have the Sundance II since I have top entrances.  It seems like when people buy something cheaper they end up getting frustrated and buying a Sundance anyway.

I think you'll have the best luck right after the main flow.  The traffic isn't so bad (since the pollen trap will cause a traffic jam) and they aren't in need of building up like they are in the early spring.
