Live Oak (Quercus virginiana) is an important source of honeydew that can yield 25 pounds per colony. And is valuable during droughts as it is collected during the summer.
California White Oak (Quercus lobata) yields a bitter honeydew that is considered inferior in quality and is mostly fed to the bees.
