Abstract

Numerous Bombus terricola Kirby workers and males ingested crystallizing honeydew that had accumulated on balsam firs in the alpine tundra near the summit of Whiteface Mt., N.Y., during unusually warm, dry weather in July 1982 and 1991. Bumble bees may fly far to opportunistically exploit this rare, energy-rich resource. This has significant implications for optimal foraging theory.
