5 Amazing Fun Facts About Bees
1 - They can recognize human faces
Bees perceive faces with the same method as we do! They take parts (like eyebrows, lips, and ears) and cobble them together to make out the whole face. It’s called “configular processing,” and it might help computer scientists improve face recognition technology!
2 - They can solve mathematical problems
You have to visit six stores and they’re all at six separate locations. What’s the shortest distance you can travel while visiting all six? This is the kind of problem a bee can solve !
3 - They can smell landmines.
Scientists in Croatia have trained a team of bees to smell landmines by making them associate the smell of DTT with the smell of sugar. Their sense of smell is very powerful, so they can detect odours up to 4.5 km away.
4 - They taste pollen with their paws.
But also with their mouths and antennas. When scientists dabbed the bees' legs with solutions containing sucrose, salt and bitterness, they were mostly attracted to salt, more than others.
5 - The performances of a full hive.
A hive of honey bees flies 70,000 km, the equivalent of three orbits around the earth, to collect 1.5 kg of nectar to produce honey!
