Here's some insect stuff.
Communication is essential for all insects, but in social species it plays a particularly vital role. In the dark and crowded interior of a nest, messages are relayed almost entirely by touch and smell. The queen releases airborne chemicals called pheromones, and these stimulate the other members of the colony to behave as a single unit. Kinda like men following Britney Spears around. If a foreign insect enters the nest, its alien scent exposes it to immediate attack.
Social insects also share information about food. As workers enter and leave the nest, they frequently make contact, enabling them to find out what their fellow workers have collected. Ants lay scent trails that lead to feeding sites. Worker honey bees returning to the hive perform special dances that show the direction of the food source and its distance from the hive. Primed with this information, other workers can find sources of food more than 10 km (about 6 mi) away.
Among nonsocial insects, communication is important for mating and defense. Crickets, grasshoppers, and cicadas all attract mating partners by a sound-producing process called stridulation. Among crickets and grasshoppers, stridulation involves rubbing one body part against another to produce sounds. Cicadas make their sounds by clicking a taut membrane. When insects make sounds repeatedly during a certain period, they are said to be singing. Both males and females of these species have special ears, called tympana, for detecting one another?s calls or songs.
Insects have many other methods in addition to stridulation for signaling to potential mates. Some insects use their antennae to hear sounds made by other species members. For example, male mosquitoes use their featherlike antennae to hear the sound of female wing-beats. Insects commonly rely on pheromones to announce their availability for mating. Water striders, or gerrids, attract mates by using their legs to create specific patterns of ripples on the surface of water.
So I guess the WTBTS is the QUEEN BEE eh? What she says goes!
