Bee Cologne

How do honeybees know when a foreigner has invaded their hive? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Bees not only communicate through sound. They also use scents to communicate. And the hive is full of scents. Yet honeybees are constantly alert to bees that are not members of the hive. Invaders are killed. How can bees so successfully protect the hive?

Entomologists have discovered that members of a hive all carry the same chemical password. All bees use a specific combination and subtle variations of only two chemicals. Yet, each hive can instantly tell whether another bee carries the specific chemical password.

The complexity of this beehive defense shows not only a wise and powerful Creator. It also shows us that He cares for what He has created. He cares for You, too. Learn more about the specific details of His love for You in the Bible.
