Bees can link symbols with numbers, study finds

Studies have shown that bee brains are able to link symbols to numbers. Credit: RMIT University We've learned that bees can understand zero and do basic arithmetic, and now a new study shows that their tiny insect brains may be able to connect symbols to numbers. Researchers have trained honeybees to assign a character to a specific set, and found …

"Bee Safe" pesticides are actually not very safe for bees

In recent years there has been growing concern about the impact of pesticides in agriculture on bee health, with much of the focus being on so-called "neonicotinoids" or "neonics" ("neonics" for short). The neonic has become ever closer, and manufacturers have developed pesticides that are considered "bee safe". However, one of these substances, flupyradifuron (FPF), which is marketed under the …

Scientists say that bees can do basic math

According to a study published in Science Advances this week, scientists from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, have shown that honeybees can add and subtract when trained to do so. This discovery helps scientists understand the relationship between brain size and brain power, and bird heads may be torn from the list of perceived difficulties. Honeybees and humans are separated …

Bees can do maths, study finds (as if they need more reasons to be amazing)

We owe a lot to the bees – our entire environment essentially depends on their survival. And as if they were not already impressive enough, scientists have just found that they can perform basic arithmetic. Scientists have already determined that bees possess impressive cognitive abilities, and this time they are looking for mathematics from them: "Bees have demonstrated the ability …

Bees can now solve mathematical problems by addition and subtraction

Sumiko Scott / Getty Images Mathematics can be very complex and elegant. It can explain how the planets move through space and how the particles that compose the universe interact with each other. And while honeybees can not yet write down Einstein's general theory of relativity, new evidence suggests that the clever little pollinators can perform simple additions to subtraction …
