I see my bees are still bringing in various colors of bright pollen. Who eats the pollen? Is it just for rearing young or do the adult bees eat the pollen as well?

A good way to look at it is the pollen is the vitamins minerals and protein they need to sustain life. Honey is there carbs. They mix it together in a bee bread and yes they consume it. although they consume less than developing brood
