Honeybees (Apis mellifera) are well known for their communication and orientation skills and for their impressive learning capability(1,2). Because the survival of a honeybee colony depends on the exploitation of food sources, forager bees learn and memorize variable flower sites as well as their profitability. Forager bees can be easily trained in natural settings where they forage at a feeding site and learn the related signals such as odor or color. Appetitive associative learning can also… CONTINUE READING
