Bee Quiz: Buzzed a Move
4.) How do bees communicate?
Bees literally express themselves through dance. What looks to us like a lot of moving around in circles and a little tush-shaking every now and then is actually a form of communication. Bees that do this dance recruit other bees to forage for a source of food — thanks to the waggle dance, they know exactly where to find it. Now there's an effective mnemonic.
Watch the video below for some honeybee dance floor action — but you probably won't be able to understand the message unless you speak bee.
