Bees have a chip on their shoulder
Exciting developments in micro tracking devices now allows CSIRO scientists to put tracking devices on bees. A lot of 'buzz' has surrounded this news story, and its easy to see why - the potential for this sort of technology in understanding movement and behaviour of a wide range of arthropods is very exciting, no other methods currently come close. They will continue to shrink the devices down, so who knows - maybe we will put some on aphids sooner or later!!
