Bioelectromagnetics: Bees & Flowers Communicate Using Electrical Fields, Scientists Find

Did you know that flowers and bees communicate with one another about the amount and quality of pollen available using bioelectromagnetics?

The Communication Between Bees and Flowers

In a recent study from the University of Bristol and published in Science Express, scientists put electromagnetic detectors in flowers’ pollinators to watch the great romance of spring and determine if electrical signals given off by both bee and flower aided in communication. They also watched bee behavior to observe some interesting findings.

What scientists discovered is that flowers tell bees specific information, including how much pollen they have, if another bee has visited them recently, and what type of flower they are. Flowers and bees communicate effectively to aid bees in the work they do.

Nature is probably more honest than the person you met at a bar last week or the latest update to a romantic interests’ online dating profile, because the flower ‘knows’ that a bee won’t visit them if they don’t provide nectar or pollen, and so they use positive reinforcement through electromagnetic signals to help draw the bee in – aside from their bright colors, exotic petals and heady perfumes. They always tell the truth about what they have to offer.

Researchers at the University of Bristol also discovered that bumblebees can distinguish different types of flowers with more discernment utilizing floral electric fields. While plants are usually negatively charged, bees can build up to a 200-volt charge as they fly through the air. When they land on a flower, this electric charge helps the bee and flower ‘talk’ to one another. This electric relationship is not entirely understood by researchers just yet, as scientists don’t’ know exactly how bees (or flowers) detect electrical fields.
