When Bees Get Angry They "Whoop"

Honey bees make a noise, one that we can't hear, that is referred to as the "whoop whooping signal."

In a short BBC science film (1m 15s), Dr. Martin Bencsik of Nottingham Trent University tells us what he thinks is the cause: anger.

Take a look at this Facebook entry from 2018, too, when a different reason was mentioned but one that certainly could include anger.
