I saw an article/video on BBC.com entitled "A Bee C: Scientists translate honeybee queen duets" and would like to hear other's thoughts about the content.

An excerpt: "Worker bees make new queens by sealing eggs inside special cells with wax and feeding them royal jelly.

The queens quack when ready to emerge - but if two are free at the same time, they will fight to the death.

So when one hatches, its quacks turn to toots, telling the workers to keep the others - still quacking - captive."
