Foragers snack before they fly out from the hive.

If a forager goes very far from the hive, she must carry enough nectar in her crop for her to consume to make the trip out. If collecting pollen, she may need to use some of that nectar to help form and mold that pollen onto her corbiculae, and maybe even fuel her trip back.
