Therefore, the gathering of this organic substance by the bees is beneficial not only for the beehive colony but also for the flowers and the plants.
As the worker bees are collecting such grains, they place them in the pollen basket which is located on the bees’ hind legs and either honey or nectar is added to the mixture that is created. This material is then transported back to the hive by the worker bees and it’s necessary in order to keep the hive up and running.
In the process where the raw granules are gathered, mixed with honey/nectar and transported back to the hive – beekeepers can actually collect some of this honeybees substance by placing a simple trap in the hive’s entrance.
