Single source white clover (Fabaceae: Trifolium repens) pollen pellets collected by Apis mellifera purchased from Ames Farm (Watertown, Minnesota, USA; www.amesfarm.com) and single source rose (Rosaceae: Rosa spp.) pollen collected by Apis mellifera purchased from the China Health Club (Chongqing, China; www.teaherbalshop.com) were used to create artificial diets to raise C. calcarata eggs. Pollen identity and purity were based on vendor claims. Metabolite profiling of pure 100% clover and 100% rose pollen was conducted at the Metabolomics Core of the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minnesota, USA). A total of 10 mg of pollen was submitted for an amino acid profile to determine the concentration (nmols) of 42 amino acids and 40 mg of pollen was submitted for a NEFA (Non-Esterified Fatty Acid) panel to determine the concentration (nmols) of 12 fatty acids.
