Queen Bees, Crumb horns and Bag Pipes


Queen bees Sing- It is called "Piping" - I guess because they sound like they are tooting their own horns!
Here are three  videos that you can play to hear what newly hatched virgin queens sound like.
The young Bee Queens  do this right after they hatch out and before mating with the drones.
 If you can sound like a queen. you can catch her and the whole hive!! since she will seek out the older queen to destroy her!
Listen! Then listen to the Crumbhorns and Pipes  played below...





Here is one on the comb



If I could play a crumbhorn, I might could catch a Queen and her ladies!


or perhaps  a bagpipe??
