Social Reinforcement Delays in Free-Flying Honey Bees (Apis mellifera L.)
Due to the cyclical rhythm of honey bee foraging behaviors, a post-reinforcement delay at a foraging location would in turn delay a variety of social behaviors in the hive such as unloading behaviors. Free-flying honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) reactions were observed when presented with varying schedules of post-reinforcement delays of 0 s, 300 s, or 600 s.
