Honeybee

"Honey bees are exposed to hundreds of pesticides, while they are foraging on flowers and also when beekeepers apply chemicals to control bee pests," said Christina Grozinger, professor of entomology and director of the Center for Pollinator Research, Penn State.

Figure 1

Females of most bee species have specialized pollen collecting hairs on their legs or underneath their abdomen to carry pollen from flowers to their nest. The different pollen species (note the different colors) collected by these bee species likely differ in protein:lipid ratios (P:L) that they are adapted to eat. Bee species: L - Nomia amabilis collected on Rafnia elliptica; M – Megchile discolor collected on Acacia karoo and Grewia robusta; R – Amegilla aspergina collected on Morea inclanata. Photos by Anthony Vaudo

Figure 2

Plant family and bee species average P:L values. Circles represent plant families, and diamonds represent bee species. Note how the bee species differ in P:L values of the pollen collected. This may be because they have different nutritional preferences and therefore differentially collect pollen from locally available flowers to balance their diet.
