Researchers at London’s Queen Mary University demonstrated that bees can be trained to perform complex tasks.
In their experiment, a real bee was shown the task of moving a mini football into a circle by a fake bee.
The real bee was then able to copy its actions and perform the same task. Furthermore, the bee went on to teach other bees the same action – which was rewarded with a treat each time the task was successfully completed.
