What are Pollen Grains?
Pollen grains , also known as bee pollen , are small particles produced by flowers and other crops. These grains contain the male genitals of these flowers and other crops and are transferred from flower to flower and carried along by the bee colony.
How do you recognize pollen?
You have probably received a beautiful bunch of flowers. As you put the flowers in the vase, you notice that there are several yellow-colored powdery dots on your clothes or table. We call such a yellow-coloured powdery speck pollen. Pollen can be found on the stamens of a flower or crop and when touched it remains on the legs of the bees , bumblebees, etc. Pollen is the male genital part of the flower or other crop that is used for fertilization and bees convert pollen into bee grains by adding nectar and enzymes.
What is the function of pollen grains in the bee colony?
Pollen grains are of course not taken along by the bee colony for a reason. In fact, bees need the pollen grains to survive, because the grains are the raw material for bees for almost all products they make and from which they extract the necessary proteins. For example, the bees use it as food for eggs and larvae, which then grow into healthy bees in the bee colony.
Why do the granules vary in color and size?
Pollen grains can vary in color and size due to several factors, such as the type of flower the pollen comes from, the age of the flower, and even the region where the flower grows. Also, the size and color of pollen grains can vary depending on the species of bee collecting it, as bees are sometimes selective in which flowers they visit and thus collect different types of pollen.
