Honeybees love to ‘whoop’: Scientists discover vibrational signal is expression of surprise (VIDEO)

“There’s no way a bee was trying to inhibit another one that frequently, and there’s no way a bee would request food that frequently,”  Bencsik told New Scientist.

“We suggest that, in the majority of instances, it is bees being startled that produce the signal,” said Bencsik who suggests changing the name of the phenomenon to the ‘whooping signal’.

The researchers now want to investigate the pulse when it is associated with a startled response and apply this to an entire colony to assess the extent to which the response changes in the long term.


Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
