Bee foragers and their pollen loads in South Georgia rabbiteye blueberry


American Bee Journal 135(12): 825-826
Bee foragers and their pollen loads in South Georgia rabbiteye blueberry
Bees foraging on Vaccinium ashei flowers were surveyed on 4 days in late March. Apis mellifera foragers were by far the most numerous, but most were robbing nectar and only 3.2% were pollen collectors (P). Of Bombus impatiens workers and queens, 76.3% and 38%, respectively, were P. Other occasional visitors were Habropoda laboriosa (13.3% P) and Xylocopa micans and X. virginica (nectar robbers).
