This is covered in Srimad Bhagvatam.

Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya reply to King Yadu,

Guru No. 17 of Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya

Honeybee: Lord Dattatreya replied that my seventeenth guru is Honeybee. Honeybee wanders from flower to flower and, without hurting them in the least, draws honey. So too, a spiritual seeker should study all the Holy Scriptures but retain in his heart, only that which is essential for his spiritual practice. Such is the teaching I imbibed from my seventeenth guru, the honeybee.

Will be continued
