Are bees smart creatures?

    Smarter than you think! Studies have been done that show bees can learn and remember thing. One study actually indicated that bees can recognize human faces! The good news is that the killer bees don’t appear to be as smart. When put in a study where a puff of jasmine odor was followed by a reward of sugar water, the killer bees did not catch on to the reward process like the normal honeybees did.

    There are a few potential applications on bees in the military as part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Controlled Biological Systems Program.  By giving bees a reward of sugar water, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory, are training bees to smell explosives.  Other than explosives, bees are also being trained to detect other substances that may be hazardous to the military, such as biowarfare products.
