Abstract

Until recently honey bees have been generally regarded as totally deaf to airborne sound. During the past five years the authors and Dr W F Towne (Kutztown University, Pennsylvania, USA) discovered and investigated the auditory sense of honey bees. In this article we review the present knowledge about hearing in honey bees.
