Communication and Perception
This species of bumblebee, like many other kinds of bees, communicates mainly by performing special dances. These dances may include messages about the location of food or even a warning that danger is near.
There is also an indirect type of communication used by bees. When workers come back from gathering nectar, they regurgitate it and present it to other bees in the colony who then communicate whether or not the nectar is needed by either rejecting or accepting the nectar.
Communication Channels: visual ; tactile
