I tagged a florea worker with a numbered tag and introduced her back to the nest. I was trying to see if the tags would stay since the bees are so small and the tags were designed for mellifera queens. I also wanted to see bees would accept their tagged sisters since they seem to be very sensitive to smell. A newly tagged worker here gets a lot of attention because of the smell of resin used to glue the tag.
