Bees Get Their Caffeine Buzz

New research has come out that shows that when bees that pollinate flowers whose nectar contains caffeine their memory skills are increased.
Tests included offering tasty nectar to bees, both caffeine and caffeine free versions.  Bees were more likely to return to the full octane versions.
There are 100 species whose nectars produce caffeine and further research is required to learn more information.
