Bee pollen, as the name suggests, is pollen collected from bees. Beekeepers harvest this precious substance by placing a screen over the hive with openings just large enough for the bees to pass through. As the bees enter, the screen extracts the pollen. Dont worry the baby bees don't go hungry, there is still plenty of pollen making its way into the hive.
