It is well established mat honeybees inform their nestmates of the location of flowers they have visited by a unique behavior called a "waggle dance". To evaluate the efficacy of this dance in terms of food collection, we constructed a Markov model for foraging behavior. The computer simulation showed that our model faithfully expressed actual bee behavior; revealed that a colony in which honeybees danced and correctly transferred information made 2.15 times more successful visits to food sources compared to a colony with non-accurate information transfer; and suggested that the waggle dance is effective only under particular conditions.
