Pollen embedded in honey or pure pollen collected by honeybees as pollen loads and deposited in bee boxes find a number of applications. Beekeepers provide a mesh trap at the entrance of a bee box with a tray below in which pollen loads are deposited. The pollen loads consist of pure pollen collected by honeybees, which are packed in spoon shaped pollen baskets in the hind legs of bees. While entering the bee box, the hind legs of bees become stuck in the mesh trap and during this process pollen loads are detached and fall in the tray.
