Movements of the Waggle Dance

Honey bees perform a group of movements, called the “waggle dance talk.”

They do this to inform other worker bees of the exact location of the food source. Some of these locations can be up to five hundred feet from their hive.

Honey bees fly from their colony looking for nectar and pollen. When they are successful in locating good food supplies, they then return to their hive and performs a dance on the honeycomb.

At first, the bee walks a straight line while shaking its abdomen vigorously. The bee also makes a buzzing sound with its wings.

The speed and distance of the movement conveys the distance of where the food source is so other bees can find it.

Communicating the path to follow is more complex because the bee performing the waggle dance talk will align their body in the exact direction of where the food is in accordance with the sun.

The dance pattern looks like a figure-eight, as the honey bee keeps repeating the straight part of the movement every time it circles back to the center area again.
