Pheromones ~~

PHEROMONES

I have heard of the bee waggle dance..the dance that bees do to communicate certain things like the location and distance of food etc. That seems to be talked about more than Pheromones and yet the release of pheromones by bees communicate so many things to other bees in the hive that I am surprised it is not mentioned more often. Honey bees release pheromones into the hive or environment to cause changes in the physiology and behaviour in the rest of the bees in the hive.

Types of Honeybee Pheromones

* Alarm pheromone
* Brood recognition pheromone
* Drone pheromone
* Dufour’s gland pheromone
* Egg marking pheromone
* Footprint pheromone
* Forager pheromone
* Nasonov pheromone
* Other pheromones
