Honey Bee Removing Pollen From Leg

Honey Bee Removing Pollen From Leg

Published on Aug 27, 2021

New research from Georgia Tech's College of Engineering finds that honey bees have developed a way to transform pollen particles into a viscoelastic pellet which allows them to transport pollen efficiently, quickly, and reliably to their hive. They also remove pollen from their bodies at speeds 2-10 times slower than their typical grooming speeds..
