How do bees carry their pollen?



  1. 0 Votes

    Bees carry the pollen that they are going to bring back to the hive to eat in special sacks on their legs. However, in the process of climbing into the flower to get at pollen and nectar to eat, pollen dust also gets stuck to the bee’s furry body. While most of the pollen in the bee’s pollen sacks will eventually be eaten, what gets stuck to her body may get rubbed off inside the next flower the bee visits. This is how pollination occurs – it’s worth it to the plant to sacrifice a bit of pollen to feed the bees that also spread pollen from flower to flower.
