A new study has found that honeybees, just like humans, practice ‘distance’ in their hives when exposed to common parasites.

Nationalgeographic.co.id—A new study has found that honeybee, like humans, spread themselves in the nest when exposed to common parasites, and this can help them contain plague within the colony. Behavioral strategies on honeybee this should be our example in an effort to limit the transmission of parasites.

When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, the world became familiar with the word social distancing. While this term is a bit unfortunate (physical distancing might be better), it sends a clear message: staying away from each other can help stop the spread of this virus.

This distance approach has been reported several times in very different species, from baboons fleeing individuals with gastrointestinal infections to pathogen-infected ants moving to the fringes of ant nests. Vampire bats, mandrills and guppies do too. Now, this type of behavior has been reported by scientists for the first time to occur in honeybee.
