The top entrance ones have cleaner pollen and are easier to make.

You would need to train them to a top entrance first.  Then put up with a traffic jam for a few days, but they will use them.

A whip and a chair usually works--does for lions anyway.    Just remember that if you turn your back on them you might get stung.
