Beehive Insert Application

Applying Firman Pollen at the hive entrance is the easiest and most efficient way to apply pollen. One acre’s worth of pollen can easily be spread across 2 inserts in a matter of minutes. Placing Firman Pollen at the hive entrance stimulates bee activity and provides them compatible pollen to distribute from the moment they leave the hive.

Firman Pollen’s E-Z Wood Insert and Cardboard Insert create a slope entrance/exit to the hive. Inserts are quick and easy to install. Pollen is placed in the inserts and as the field force exit the hive the pass through the pollen.

Firman Pollen carries all of the necessary PPE to make sure hive application is as safe as possible.
