Bees' electric charge makes them easy prey

1 post in this topic

Pity the honey bees – as if they did not have enough to contend with, it seems that even the act of flying makes them easier prey for spiders.

Scientists have found that tiny electrical charges that build up as bees fly attract spider silk, making them more likely to be snared in a web.

The researchers claim electrostatic charge created by the fiction of the bee’s wings in the air is enough to deform the web and draw it closer to the insect.
