Honeybees let out a ‘whoop’ when they bump into each other | New Scientist

How it looks from here…   The bees aren’t saying “Whoop”  or even “whoops” like it seems to suggest.  From reading the article and knowing bees, it’s probably more like, “Hey!” or “Hey there!”

Whoops, please.  There’s no “whooping” in a bee hive.  Bees gots things to do and places to bee.  There’s no time for “whooping”.

Just saying.

A vibrational pulse that was thought to be a “stop” signal between bees may actually be a startled response when they collide
