Honey bees have a great sense of smell. Knowing this, scientists succeeded
in training honey bees to identify the COVID-19 virus, potentially cutting
testing time from hours or days to seconds. Scientists at Wageningen
University in the Netherlands gave the bees sugary water as a reward after
showing them samples infected with COVID-19. They would get no reward after
being shown a non-infected sample. It didn't take long for the bees to
extend their proboscises (tongues) whenever they were presented with
COVID-19 samples. Wageningen scientists say that this has the potential to
offer quick and easy COVID-19 testing in areas where other testing methods
are not available.
