I don’t think I would like to have this particular plant in my farm, especially because in summer I go out to the yard to inspect my and detect larvas, caterpillars with an ultraviolet lamp, and seeing this scary flower would probably be a deterrent for me to keep on doing what I have being doing for years 🤣😁

Bee Nutrition Facts
All Bees get all of their carbohydrates from floral nectar, and all of their protein from floral pollen.
Bees rely on flowers to supply them with the food they need to survive. Some flowers (e.g. tomatoes) provide only pollen, the main source of protein for bees. Other flowers (e.g. clovers) provide both nectar and pollen, thus providing both protein and carbohydrates.
