A recent study published in the British journal Royal Society Open Science says beeswax has the power to turn an nice, calm, well organised hive in to a chaotic swarm of rebellion. Normally bees just get on with things, looking after their queen and bringing honey back to the hive. But according to this new research, studying bumblebees, when the chemical composition of the beeswax changes the bees go crazy. They stop co-operating and start completing. They get agitated, attack each other, rip open the egg cells to kill the eggs, and turn on the queen. Who knew!?
