Bee Pollen is collected by worker bees out in the field who collect bee pollen on their legs and bring it back to the hive as a protein source for the honey bees. Beekeepers most often collect bee pollen using a bee pollen trap at the entrance of the beehive. The trap has holes at the entrance of which when the bees climb through, the bee pollen falls off of their legs and falls into a tray below. Beekeepers then can remove the tray collecting pollen from their bees. NOTE: Beekeepers should always be limiting how much they take from their colonies to ensure the colonies ALWAYS COME FIRST.
