Animal Noise?

Prairie Dog.

Bees have a complex communication system which we beekeepers often marvel at. But they’re not the only creatures who can chat it up.

Ever listened to prairie dogs? If you’ve spent some time out west, I’ll bet you’ve heard their bark.

Here’s a neat Radiolab Short concerning animal communication. In nature, things are not often as simple as they seem, even the prairie dog’s yelp.

As natural beekeepers, we’re well aware of that fact. That’s why we let the bees teach us and try our best to stay out of their way.

Could there be more to that buzzing than we think! I wonder what kind of buzz would describe me and my beekeeping? I know there were times in the past when they would have cursed me out. 🙂
