Scientists Find Bees Have Sugar-sensing Taste Neurons

Researchers at Newcastle University discover the reason why bees linger on a flower and devouring it of nectar. Bees have two taste neurons on their mouth that fires signals for up to 10 seconds when in contact with food. While these signals fire, the bee continues to feed.


The team found that the bee has two taste neurons within each 'taste bud' which interact to enable this persistent, intense sugar neuron activity[...]

We have discovered however, that bees have two different types of sugar-activated neurons[...]

"The first neuron exhibits intense activity when in contact with sugar. The second neuron intermittently inhibits the activity of the first neuron for short durations of time. This inhibition allows the first neuron a sort of 'resting period', so it can recover and maintain its intense activity for longer periods of time." [...]
