Event Details

Worker honey bees are remarkable creatures.  In this talk, Dr Seeley will present five short "stories" about the behavioral skills of these bees.  We will look at how worker honey bees 1) provide directions to important places, 2) rouse sleepy hive mates in the morning, 3) call for help in unloading nectar, 4) request help in grooming their bodies, and 5) prevent mass asphyxiation inside their homes.
