When a honeybee colony becomes overcrowded, a swarm of thousands departs with the old queen to form a new colony. Cornell professor, biologist and beekeeper Thomas Seeley explains how honeybees use swarm intelligence to make the critical decision of which new nest site to pick. Seeley's book, "Honeybee Democracy" was published in 2010 by Princeton University Press.
