    types of nectar sources the bees used making
    it? Duane.

    Nowhere that I've heard of. There was an ad on here once for a system that would do a DNA analysis on the pollen on the theory that that's probably the nectar source. It was VERY expensive.

    I've wondered if you could train the scouts to seek specific flowers by marking the hive entrance with the same flower.
