Re: How do bees see and what do they see inside the dark of their nest??????
Some are. Some even orange. They see reds and oranges as we see black. Black like bears? White is cheap and less "threatening"(?).
Plus, traditionally, would bkprs wish to wear yellow? Meaning, when suits were developed, men wouldn't wear yellow, most likely. So, yellow suits wouldn't sell as well as white.
Suits are made for bkprs, in colors and fabrics that are coolest and nonthreatening to the bees and other reasons.
I have and see red hives all the time, tho white is the traditional color of them.
As far as the inside and what bees see. Maybe it doesn't have anything to do w/ sight. Maybe the waggle tail dance is the bee giving off scent in a pattern that othwer bees can detect and understand to mean something. I don't know. Interesting question.
