    • Actually it’s because bees sometimes run out of energy before returning home and land, the ants get protection from bees so they try to save them by giving them food for energy to live!

    • Y’know ants release a pheromone when they die that tell the other ants to carry their body to a chamber in the mound where they throw all the dead ants to keep them out of the way in the tunnels of the mound. They proved they had no concept of death by spraying a living ant with the pheromone

    • People are saying it's fake, but it's not, but it's definitely not wholesome. The ants surround the dead bee with flower petals to cover up the scent while they start ripping the bee apart to take it back to the nest for food, so other ants don't come and try to take the bee for themselves

    • It's actually so that other bigger insects would mistake the rotten smell from the carcass of the bumblebee with flowers and thus avoid coming near it...ultimately making sure that the ants have a meal to savour for days

    • Dying flower petals secrete an enzyme that softens and breaks down the karatin exoskeleton found in insects. This is one of the plant natural defense mechanisms against insects who are looking for an easy way to eat the soft interior of the plant by going through the dead flower.

    • Probably making the bee more obvious to birds or larger animals so they can pick it up. Ants might not be able to eat it or might not be good for them who knows. Ants are smart

    • Now, don't quote me on this because I'm not sure, but I did a study on ants in grade school and I feel like I remember reading that ants will cover dead insects with something fragrant to mark that it's dead so it doesn't spread to the colony. Not sure tho, could be wrong

    • So apparently ants will put pebbles and sticks around something they will eat so it is harder for other ants in other colonies to find it. Or since bees and ant are related they are trying to cover the bee up as to not spread mold to the other ants nest.
