A variety of conditions external to the colony have been explored to determine their effects on the communication signals used by bees, but few have considered the factors within the hive that may influence the bees’ communication.

CzaczkesUniversity of Regensburg, Germany. Nieh observed fights between conspecifics at a feeding station, and he simulated a predator attack by pinching bees visiting a feeder on the metathoracic femur with forceps.

Similarly, Michelsen et al.

Additionally, though Nieh found that dance followers occasionally use the stop signal on waggle dancers, in Pastor and Seeley’s results the majority of stop signalers were dance followers. It can be inferred that by inhibiting the waggle dance, the stop signal strengthens the nectar-receiver-recruiting effect of the tremble dance Figure 1but this does not account for the bees observed using the stop signal outside of the dance floor.

During a swarm’s nest site selection process, scout bees that visited a different site than the one being advertised are more likely to stop-signal the waggle dancer than are scouts that had visited the same site.

Pastor and Seeley revisited the question of which bees send and receive the stop signal after noting that the bees in Nieh’s study may not have been behaving normally due to the large influx of food they were receiving from the feeding station.

Worker piping in honey bees Apis mellifera: Honey bees Apis mellifera L. A summary of the roles of the stop signal can be found in Table 1. When the siynalling signal is received by a waggle dancer she is more likely to terminate her dance early and retire from the dance floor. Foragers that performed the stop signal signallling to spend less of their time within the colony on the dance floor, and often continued performing the stop signal outside of the dance floor Thom et al.


No use, distribution or reproduction is permitted which does not comply with these terms. The brief piping signal of the honey bee: It is currently best understood as a counter to the waggle dance, offering negative jpsi toward the advertised foraging location or nest site.

In a follow-up study using two nest boxes of differing volumes, much of the stop signaling observed was ipsi-signaling rather than contra-signaling, and some of stop signalers had not visited either nest site Visscher, Schlegel, and Kietzman, unpublished data. The focus will be on exploring the balance among communication signals used by individuals and the resulting adjustment of response by the colony as a ipi.

When waggle dancers receive a stop signal they are more likely to leave the dance floor Nieh, ; Pastor and Seeley, and their average dance length signallign shorter Kirchner, b. Stop signaling increased when a feeding station was available Thom et al.

There is clearly more to learn about the uses and effects of the stop signal during swarming. The results of Schlegel et al. A summary of the roles of the stop signal in honey bee colonies. Here, we will focus on a few of the vibratory ones including the well-known waggle dance, which signals the distance and direction of a resource such as a food source or a potential nest site to nestmates von Frisch, The use, distribution or reproduction in other forums is permitted, provided the original author s or licensor are credited and that the original publication in this journal is cited, in accordance with accepted academic practice.

On optimal decision-making in brains and social insect colonies. This deadlock avoidance is of key importance to the nest site selection process because unlike during foraging, a decision for a single site must be reached.

We will be provided with an authorization token please note: In contrast, a feeding station siignalling a very rich food source found only at a single location. The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential signallung of interest.


Most of the stop signaling activity was by tremble dancers, although non-waggle dancing nectar foragers also performed the stop signal Thom et al. Honey bee stop-signal production: Acoustical communication in honey bees.

This may be because some bees were not able to access the feeder at all due to overcrowding and returned to the colony without feeding. For example, the question of stop signaling during swarming is still not well understood. The dancers stopped dancing soon after receiving stop signals, and their dances were shorter than those of dancers not receiving stop signals When swarms simultaneously scouted two identical nesting boxes, dancers for either box received more stop signals from bees that had visited and been marked at the other site contra-signalers than bees that had visited the same site ipsi-signalers.

Worker piping in honey bee swarms and its role in preparing for liftoff. Vibrational signals in the tremble dance of the honey bee, Apis mellifera. Aside from its effect of halting waggle dances, the stop signal can also be seen in use by bees not located on the dance floor and received by bees that are not waggle dancers.

This, however, does not explain the lower-level occurrence of the ipsi-signaling that was also present. Trail pheromones, which are also used by termites, stingless bees, and social wasps, are used to recruit other individuals to food sources and nest sites Czaczkes et al. Additionally, using the stop signal may enable bees to rapidly adjust foraging efforts in response to shifts in their environment’s nectar flow.

Tremble dancers that performed the stop signal tremble-danced for longer than non-stop signalers and traveled deeper into the hive Thom et al. Modeling the adaptive role of negative signaling in honey bee intraspecific competition.
