From the article:
When Austrian zoologist Karl von Frisch claimed, back in the 1920s, that he had "decoded the language of the bees," many researchers thought he was delusional. Frisch studied the bees "strange dancing" in their hives, and noted that the dancing was a kind of communication, expressing the distance to the nearest source of nectar and its quality.

Sincerely,

Bees don't like avacadoes?  That was interesting since I thought for sure that they loved guacomole. But after reading the article, it must be the lime juice in the guacomole that they like.
