Caffeine Boosts Bee's Memories

According to researchers

Researchers from Newcastle University have discovered that bees get a caffeine buzz from the nectar of certain flowers. This caffeine buzz not only boosts bees' memory, it could also assist plants by calling up more bees to spread their pollen.

Researchers discovered that honeybees consuming a sugar solution containing caffeine, which occurs naturally in the nectar of certain flowers, were three times more likely to remember a flower's particular scent than those consuming nectar sans caffeine.
