  Pheromone - The Encyclopedia
Insect pheromones of pest species, such as the Japanese beetle and the gypsy moth, can be used to trap them for monitoring purposes or for control by creating confusion, disrupting mating and preventing them from laying eggs.
In mammals and reptiles, pheromones may be detected by the vomeronasal organ, or Jacobson's organ, which lies between the nose and mouth, although some are detected by regular olfactory membranes.
Boar pheromones are sprayed into the sty, and those sows which exhibit sexual arousal are known to be currently available for breeding.

 Entomology - UC Riverside Take-Out Bee Traps
The problem of straggler bees can be solved by transporting the hive only at night after the bees have settled, by spraying them at night when all the bees are likely to be on the swarm cluster, or by returning to the site at night, locating the clustered stragglers and repeating the insecticide application.
Bees were attracted to the traps by the pheromone, but then relatively few entered the entrances, often going part way in and then back out.
Bees discovered and entered the traps most quickly when they were close to the original site of the swarm, but were able to find traps at least 35 m away, though the rate of bee arrival at 35 m was less than at 5 m (Fig.

 Honey bee pheromones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Honey bee pheromones are mixtures of chemical substances released by individual bees into the hive or environment that cause changes in the physiology and behaviour of other bees.
Pheromones are produced as a liquid and transmitted by direct contact as a liquid or as a vapor.
This pheromone is emitted by the worker bees and used for orientation.

 Pheromone Summary
Pheromones are a specific type of chemical signal in which substances are produced by one organism that conveys a message to another organism usually of the same species.
Pheromones are released outside of the organism's body to coordinate behavioral and physiological activities among individuals of the population.
Pheromones that cause an animal to make oriented movements toward the source of the pheromone are termed attractants, in contrast to repellents that stimulate movements away from the source.

 Urban IPM: nsects: Bees, Hornets, and Wasps: Honey Bees
Honey bees are around 0.7 of an inch (17mm) in length, have a hairy body that is yellowish orange in color with fl transverse bands on the abdomen.  A more detailed look into their morphology uncovers three different body types representing the division of labor within the hive. 
In the wild honey bees commonly build their hives in tree cavities, hidden away from predators, however, very few wild honey bees are left due to a pest known as the varroa mite and the large majority of existing honey bees are kept in apiaries.
Honey bees must be carefully managed, as they may on occasions cause the extinction of native bee species, through competition.

Pheromones in humans are believed to be produced by the apocrine glands.
Pheromones could also be the reason why a person can sense "chemistry", or feel an instant attraction or dislike when first meeting someone.
Pheromones, chemicals emitted by one individual to evoke some behavior in another of the same species, are known to govern sexual activity in animals, but experts differ as to what role, if any, they play in making humans sexually attractive to one another." New York Times

Honey bees are beneficial pollinators and should be left alone and appreciated unless their nest are in conflict with human activity.
If honey bees nest in the walls of a home, they can be removed or killed if necessary; however, it is advisable to open the area and remove the honey and combs or rodents and insects will be attracted.

Honey bees were brought to the Western Hemisphere by European colonists.
The Africanized bee is a hybrid of the African and European honeybee.It is almost identical in appearance to the European subspecies of honeybee and identification requires microscopic measurements or DNA analysis in a laboratory.
The new bees however produced less honey and due to their highly defensive nature they were kept in a box with queen excluders (slats that allow only the smaller workers to fly out), to stop them ever reproducing in the wild.

 UGA Honey Bee Program - Pollination - Managing Honey Bees for Pollination
Bee hives are almost always moved at night when bees are not flying and temperatures are cooler.
In these cases, the center of the field is less likely to be visited by bees, but you can remedy this by putting more colonies in the center-most groups along the field edge; this increases competition and forces bees to forage deeper into the field.
Some pesticides are listed below according to their relative bee hazard; look for a product labeled for the target pest, with low bee toxicity (that is, a high LD and with a short residual time (Table of Insecticides and Miticides).

 Bee learning and communication - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Honey bees learn and communicate in order to find food sources and for other means.
Honey bees are quite adept at associative learning, and many of the standard phenomena of conditioning take the same form in honey bees as they do in the vertebrates that are the more usual subjects of such experiments.
One of the most important lines of evidence on the origin and utility of the dance is that all of the known species and races of honey bees exhibit the behavior, but details of its execution vary among the different species.

 Doctoral Thesis
The honey bee queen produces pheromones that function in both releaser and primer roles such as attracting a retinue of workers around her, attracting drones on mating flights, preventing workers from reproducing at the individual (worker egg laying) and colony (swarming) level, and regulating several other aspects of colony functioning.
To identify the remaining unknown compounds for retinue attraction, honey bee colonies (Apis mellifera L.) were selectively bred to have low response to synthetic QMP and high response to a queen extract in a laboratory retinue bioassay.
When chiral pheromones are first identified, the racemic form is usually synthesized (or purchased) to compare physical, chemical, and behavioral properties with the isolated pheromone.
