Insects like Bees and Wasps can teach us a lot about community and communication. Insects that live in colonies have a complex yet beautiful and simple structure in which each insect has a specific job. They may be scouts, harvesters, protectors, or breeders. We all have roles we play in our lives, sometimes for just a short period of time and sometimes for extended periods. Think about the roles you play in your life and whether you are giving those roles the attention, dedication, and energy they need. Colony insects also have a lot to teach us about communication. A scout bee will locate a food source, fly back to the hive and communicate with the harvesting bees with a series of body movements and touch. In a beautiful dance the scout bee will give exact directions to the other bees, who will then fly out to collect the pollen to bring back to the hive. If you are encountering bees or other colony type insects, think about your own methods of communication, and how you are vocalizing or expressing yourself to the people in your family or work place. Proper communication can make all the difference in our group interactions!
