Honeybees are known to store honey. Like many other animals, the honeybee has its signals that represent certain phrases. If the honey bee feels that it is going to be attacked, it will send out a response. Honey bees communicate with each other through smells. Also, if they want to show others that food is located in a distant area, they will do a dance language which means they will move in the shape of an “8”.

This wiggling lets the other know about the food. It also shows the direction that the other honeybees should fly to in order to get the food. Not all bees know these signals. Only honeybees know this about their dancing. Other species have their own means of communication.
