In the dance language, honeybees use airborne near field sound signals to inform their nestmates of the location of food sources. In behavioral experiments it has recently been shown that Johnston's organ, a chordotonal organ located in the pedicel of the antenna, is used to perceive these sound signals. In the present study the mechanical response of the antennal flagellum to stimulation with near field sound signals was investigated using laser vibrometry. The absolute amplitudes of antennal… CONTINUE READING
