Bees : Just How Clever Are They?

Bees obviously have a complex social structure, but how much of that is instinct and how much is active intelligence that can learn, recognize, adapt and create? If this is something that you've ever wondered about or if it sounds interesting then I'd invite you to listen to this edition of Ideas from the CBC. It's the better part of an hour so make yourself comfy. It's called Dancing In The Dark: The Intelligence of Bees. You'll learn a lot about how bees perceive their world, and lots of other interesting things. Well worth a listen. If you weren't fascinated with bees before, I promise you will be after listening!

And if you wanted to learn about bee sting therapy there's another 6 minute report here. Ouch!
