Research has shown that Honey Bees both carry transport pollen between plants and bring it back to their hive for food. These balls of pollen are referred to as “pollen pellets.” According to sciencemag.org, “pollen pellets”... include nectar and can account for 30% of a bee’s weight, hang off their hind legs like overstuffed saddlebags… Long hairs on the bees’ legs helped hold the pollen pellets in place as the animals flew.
