The following experiment was designed to determine whether free-flying honey bees have an aversion to an ethanol solution when given a choice between targets containing an ethanol solution in sucrose or sucrose only. Honey bees given a choice between a 1% ethanol solution and pure sucrose solution showed no preference to the sucrose solution in either the acquisition or extinction phase of the experiment. Bees given a choice between a 5% ethanol solution and sucrose solution showed no… CONTINUE READING
