The “waggle dance,” it’s the hottest honeybee dance trend where the bees fly in a zigzag pattern, turn to the right, zigzag again and turn to the left. Because honeybees know that the world is round, can calculate angles and have the ability to communicate distance, scientists have discovered the meanings behind the different waggle moves. The dances indicate the presence and location of food, shelter, predators. The waggle dance is also effective because honeybees emit a constant and modulated electric field, which aids in social communication.
