Murmuring Queens

Yesterday, I heard the queens in Hive Orange piping. It sounds a bit like singing whales, but eerier—an amazing, insistent cry audible even before I opened the hive. Very Diamanda Galas!

One of these queens will become the new mother of the colony, replacing the queen who departed with the Hive Orange swarm sometime last week.

Check out the sound of a piping queen or these other insect sounds.
