Next time I open my hives I want to take a few pictures of pollen sells then use these to try and identify the pollen source. My question is do bee's mix the pollen in the cell or are they anal like I would be and keep the different pollens separated? My first thought would be they have mixed cells. As I watch them coming into the hive I have seen a lot of different colors of pollen.

Thanks
Greg

In answer to your question, the bees usually maintain the integrity of one source per cell. But if a source quits, they might fill the remainder of the cell with a different source.
