Flowers and bees communicate with each other by using electrical fields, scientists revealed for the first time. Experts believe blooms give out electrical signals to attract bumblebees to their pollen – with their charge changing to warn others when their nectar is low. Previously, it was thought that flowers used bright colours, patterns and enticing fragrances to attract their pollinators. But new research shows the flowers also use electrical signals which work in concert with their physical attributes – enhancing their advertising power to bees.
