Right you need to get under there and collect it all up, but don't mix up the colours, then put it on the landing board in seperate little piles for the little darling to collect and take inside :)

No Mark you do not have a problem, just a few clumsy workers dropping the pollen on transfer and losing it through the varroa floor:)

Gingernut, I see the logic in your advice. When you've finished your feeder you'll need to take it all apart again because thats the best way to check that you had glue on all the surfaces! Send us a piccie when you done it please :cheers2:
