Honey Bee Morse Code?

Can Honey bees “hear” sounds through the air?

Honey bees haven’t yet been found to have sound receptors or “ears” like we do. Instead, it seems that honey bees have sensory organs that detect air movement (like sound waves).  There are receptors in the legs of bees that pick up the vibrations detected from surfaces they are standing on or making contact with.
