I remember, somewhere in the cobwebs of my mind, about fruit farmers blaming bees for piercing their fruits and causing damage. Such a bad rap for the bees.
The bees do not puncture or destroy fruit. Their proboscis is quite tender and I don't believe that they have the ability or could even pierce the skin of fruits. Yes, they are opportunists. They will take over drinking the fruit juice after it has been pierced by other types of creatures, such as birds. The bees do not destroy the fruit, in that, they do not open a wound in the skin. Too bad about the uninformed human beings. Have a wonderful day, great life. Cindi
