Almond Nectar Poisonous to Most Animals Except Honeybees

Below is a description of an interesting article about almond nectar and honeybees. To read the whole article, check this link to Newswise.

"The nectar of the almond tree produces an extraordinary and dangerous poison. This is the only known plant to have this poison in its flowers' nectar. A study carried out at the University of Haifa has revealed that bees are mysteriously drawn to the toxic substance."
