Fun fact 5/19/2017

When it’s time for a new queen bee in a honey beehive, the bees harvest several female larvae. The first virgin queen to emerge communicates with the other ones through piping – they create vibrations in the comb. The roaming virgin queen creates a sound called “tooting,” its sisters answer it with “quacking.” The free-roaming queen then goes cell-by-cell and kills them all.
