Scientists are learning a bit more about honeybees. They've conducted the first ever global analysis of genome variation in these insects, revealing a bit more about their genetic diversity and evolutionary history.
It turns out that two broad-spectrum systemic insecticides, fipornil and imidacloprid, may be especially toxic to honeybees.
Scientists have found that by interfering with a basic metabolic pathway in the insect brain, they can cause a bee to be more or less aggressive.
Not all flowers are created equal and now, it turns out that bumblebees can tell the difference.
The human population is spreading out across the globe. Unfortunately, this spread is destroying habitat and ecosystems for other animals. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at some of the smaller denizens on our planet: invertebrates.
Researchers have found exactly how honeybees manage to keep their cool in a new study.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the diet of the Western honey bee and have found that significant differences occur depending on what the bees eat.
Did you know that bees have tongues? Now, scientists have taken a closer look at them to see what determines the length of their tongues, which could be crucial to understanding bee species' resiliency to change.
A recent study conducted by researchers from the University of California, San Diego, found that a certain species of bees actually "shout" when they find food to prevent any predators from pursuing the same sources.
Researchers have found that some species of bees in Brazil "shout" when it comes to their food-recruitment signals.
Researchers have uncovered a new challenge for honeybees; it turns out that a bloodsucking parasite may be responsible for Deformed Wing Virus (DWV), which may just have become one of the biggest threats for bees in the UK.
