honey bee colonies near blueberryfield

Several multi-colored honey bee hive boxes sit in rows in a small clearing between rows of blueberry bushes in a field near a dirt road on a sunny day.

A study of managed bumble bees and honey bees on a blueberry farm finds that most of the pollen they collect comes from other plants, suggesting that supplementing crops with a diversity of nearby plant types makes for healthier bees.
