Suggest a Research Topic. Thus, feeder crowding probably increases the number of foragers within the nest, thereby increasing the number of opportunities for them to use the stop signal Lau and Nieh, However, they scanned the natural conditions colony for communication signals but did not closely examine the behaviors exhibited by signaling individual signalers, thus, an effective comparison cannot be made using their results.

The use of such a signal allows the bees to tune their recruitment more aignalling and quickly in response to changing conditions, and in a variety of contexts. This deadlock avoidance is of key importance to the nest site selection process because unlike during foraging, a decision for a single site must be reached.

For example, decreasing the food storage space available to the bees might be expected to result in an increase in tremble dancing, as the nectar receivers would be unable to store the food brought in by foragers.

A variety of conditions external to the colony have been explored to determine their effects on the communication signals used by bees, but ilsi have considered the factors within the hive that may influence the bees’ communication. Early Work on the Stop Signal The first recorded observations of the stop signal did not find clear uses and meanings for it. It is currently best understood as a counter to the waggle dance, offering negative feedback toward the advertised foraging location or nest site.

The first recorded observations of the stop signal did not find clear uses and meanings for it. Aggression and competition among signallig bees: Foragers that performed the stop signal tended to spend less of their time within the colony on the dance floor, and often continued performing the stop signal outside of the dance floor Thom et al. The balance between the positive feedback from the waggle dance and the negative feedback from the stop signal allows for a more sensitive adjustment of response from the colony dignalling a unit.


A summary of the roles of the stop signal can be found in Table 1. Group decision making in nest-site selection among social insects. There is clearly more to learn about the uses and effects of the stop signal during swarming. The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest.

Aside from its effect of halting waggle dances, the stop signal can also be seen in use by bees not located on the dance floor and received by bees that are not waggle dancers.

Another not-yet-explored avenue signallling the idea that tremble dancers that use the stop signal outside of the dance floor may be modulating the recruitment of more nectar receivers by lowering potential nectar receivers’ response thresholds to the tremble dance Thom et al.

Pastor and Seeley revisited the question of which bees send and receive the stop signal after noting that the bees in Nieh’s study may not have been behaving normally due to the large influx of food they were receiving from the feeding station. The results of Seeley et al.

This article is part of the Research Topic Ballroom Biology: In a follow-up study using two nest boxes of differing volumes, much of the stop signaling observed was ipsi-signaling rather than contra-signaling, and some of stop signalers had not visited either nest site Visscher, Schlegel, and Kietzman, unpublished data.


Stop signaling increased when a feeding station was available Thom et al. The foragers that had to wait to access the feeder were not more likely to perform the stop signal themselves, but they were more likely to receive stop signals from other bees that had visited the feeder and also from individuals that had not been observed there.

Support for the different sites will wax and wane until a threshold number of scouts, or quorum, is reached at one of the sites, after which recruitment declines, and the swarm can be mobilized to move to its new home.

The focus will be on exploring the balance among communication signals used by individuals and the resulting adjustment of response by the colony as a unit. Many of the processes associated with the iosi loops organizing a honey bee colony’s activities are in striking parallel to other systems, such as intercellular interactions involved in motor neuron function.

Modeling the adaptive role of negative signaling in honey bee intraspecific competition.

Swarm cognition in honey bees. Also, bees that used the stop signal sometimes inspected cells by entering them up to the thorax, which was a behavior not exhibited by non-stop-signaling bees Thom et al.

On optimal decision-making in brains and social insect colonies.

Wenner reported that disturbed bees emit short bursts of sound, similar to the stop signal.

The findings reviewed here suggest that the stop signal has diverse uses and effects. This, however, does not explain the lower-level occurrence of the ipsi-signaling that was also present.
