thats an interesting study, sort of makes sense thou that with a bees memory capability and ability to sense whats in the air around them that this would be a no brainer. sort of like when a second year alphalpha field gets contaminated with wilt or leaf spot, the bees don't seem to interested in working it. in fact that can be your heads up that something is amiss and you need to start keeping an eye on it.
