Amazing things about bees
When a bee discovers and inspects a new nest, it uses a waggle dance to discuss and propagate its characteristics. The better the place, the longer and tougher the bee’s dance will be. Bees can communicate and make decisions through dance. Finally, the dynamics of the waggle dance cause about 20–30 bees to be persuaded to the best place to nest, and loudly communicate their decision among the other bees from the rest of the flock and feathers.
Honey bees in Vietnam and other parts of Asia are threatened by predatory species of hornets that attack their colonies.
