Bees learn from each other just like we do  

Bumblebees have a brain about 0.0002 percent the volume of ours. But that doesn’t mean they’re not smart. In fact, there’s a lot of intelligence packed into the infinitesimal brain of a bumblebee.

A recent experiment by scientists from the Queen Mary University of London shows that the “insects possess the essential cognitive elements for cultural transmission.” It’s actually “possible to teach a single bee a new trick, in other words, and a different bee can learn that behavior from her peer.”
