Whereas humans can only sense movements that are separated by 1/50 of a sec.If a Bee were to enter a cinema hall then it would easily sense each individual movie frame being projected.another fact about bees is that they cannot recognise red color.Stringer bees have barbs which anchors the stringer in the victims body.
