About pollen

"Honey bees preferentially consume freshly-stored pollen.

The freshly-formed composite of pollen, nectar, and oral secretions is briefly more attractive than older stored pollen.

Older stored pollen sources are only likely to be fully consumed once freshly-stored pollen sources are largely exhausted."
