Apidologie - A bee in front of an odor gun. This technique allows for an association between an odor and a sugary reward. A sweet solution is applied to the antennas and the bee stretches out its proboscis, its little trunk. This odor-reflex association has brought to light the bees' capacity to remember odors and the time necessary to acquire olfactory memory. But also more complex learning: for example, an odor A is associated with a sugary solution and an odor B is not. Then, shortly after, it is reversed: the odor A is no longer associated with sugar but the odor B is. Result: the bee is capable of replacing the first signal by the new one.

Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - The coming and going of bees during a massive return to the hive. A bee transports 20 to 30 milligrams of nectar and carries out 3 to 10 flights per day during 10 to 20 days of activity. A hive has between 100,000 and 200,000 foraging bees and thus harvests between 60 kilos and 300 kilos of honey per year.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - The coming and going of beesHoney bee (Apis mellifera) - The coming and going of bees during a massive return to the hive.
