High numbers (more than 5 bees per meter square in a 30 second sample) of bees including Andrenid bees, Sweat bees, Large Carpenter bees, Bumble bees, and Honey bees are highly attracted to Goldenrod.

While bees forage on a variety of flowers, it is likely that Goldenrod is the strongest influence in the honey as it is most common in fall. Goldenrod is the last pollen protein source of the year for the bees. It is imperative to their survival that we are able to identify and preserve this plant.
