When a honey bee goes to a flower, it goes to collect the pollen. This is called mutualism between the two species because they are both helped by their interaction. The bee gains pollen in which it can create honey, a food source. The flower gets its pollen transported to other flowers which can help the reproduction of its species.

The ones closest to their hives! Bees try to be efficient and will collect from the closest source of pollen. Bee keepers are very savvy about locating their hives in su…ch a way as to take advantage of such things as orange groves and clover fields to create varietals with subtle flavors that add to the enjoyment of nature's sweetener.
Bumblebee honey is edible, although it is thinner and watery than Honeybee honey
Bees are attracted to flowers by scent and by the colours of the petals. Remember, bees can see ultra-violet so can see patterns in the petals that we can't.
it is sucking in nectar from the flower
You might want to know, why do bees, butterflies, and wasps go to flowers? Is it the color? The smell? Or is it something else? Well all of these are partly right! Insects lik…e flowers for these reasons... 1. Bees and Wasps and Butterflies drink the sweet juice there. Does anyone know what it is called? That is right! It is called nectar! The nectar is very sweet. Do you know what else eats nectar? Hummingbirds! The hummingbirds love the nectar. The bees also use the nectar to make honey. Do you like honey? It comes from bees and flowers. a. But, why do insects go to flowers? How many of you have seen all kinds of flowers! Can you tell me something about them? That is right they are colorful! Flowers come in many different shapes and sizes. The bright colors attract the insects to the flowers. If a bee likes one color better, then there are plenty of flowers for him to got to. While if Mr. Bee 2 likes a different color, he has plenty for him to go to. b. The other reason that insects go to flowers, besides for food and the color and shape is... That is right! The smell. Flowers smell so good! Have you ever smelled a rose? Some people dry flowers and put them in places so that they can smell them. Most flowers smell good. Well some of them anyway. Have you ever heard of the Corps flower? It stinks so bad! It smells like a dead animal! When the insects come, do they help the flower? Yes! The insects do help, by picking up pollen. Pollen is the yellow or orange powder that make us sneeze in the spring. Bees travel from flower to flower, collecting nectar (which is later converted to honey), and in the process they pick up pollen grains. The bee collects the pollen by rubbing against the anther. The pollen is collected on the hind legs, in dense hairs referred to as a pollen basket. As the bee flies from flower to flower, the pollen grains are transferred onto the stigma.This helps the flowers make seeds, and fruit trees make fruit.
well what i know so far is that they like flowers because of their pollen By: Brenda Patterson (FYI i am from Mississippi)
Technically I think they do eat nectar but they turn it into honey in their stomachs. They then spit it back up to eat then or store in the cell walls to eat in the long winte…rs. Hope this helps!!! -- Honey bees feed on pollen and honey. They make the honey out of flower nectar that they collect by sucking it out of flowers; they then store it in a special storage stomach and bring it back to the hive. There they pass it over to other worker bees, who make it into honey by mixing it with enzymes as they chew it. They spread the treated nectar into the honeycombs, and as the water evaporates from it, it becomes thick. When it is thick enough, they seal off the honeycomb cells with wax and store the honey until they need it.
2000 flowers a bee has to visit to make a table spoon of honey
no because honey bees pollen
Without going into great detail, A bee sucks nectar from a blooming flower to store it and mix the nectar with enzymes and proteins to formulate honey. They then deposit the h…oney in hive cells. A simple google search on honey will come up with sites offering more information.
The flowers carry nectar, so when the bees collect the nectar they eat it. That helps produce the honey. The nectar in the flowers is the bees food source. Without flowers, th…e bees would all die out.
Bees that collect a flower's honey give to that flower pollendeposits from another flower.
