Amazing Tunnels of the Austroplebeia cincta Stingless Bees

by Anne Dollin

Watch this footage of a new species of Australian stingless bee from the far north Queensland rainforest. These bees build incredibly long nest entrance tunnels as a defence against the aggressive green ants that harass them. They continually add sticky resin to the ends of their tunnels to deter the ants and the tunnels get longer and longer!
