Two honeybees work together to lift the top off a bottle of Fanta 

This is the incredible moment two honeybees decide to join forces in order to open a bottle of Fanta.

Footage captured in São Paulo, Brazil, shows the two bees position themselves on either side of the bottle and use their legs to push off the cap.

Just moments later, the bees manage to lift the top off the bottle and watch as it falls onto the ground.

Following the impressive scenes, which were captured on May 17, the filmer told Viral Hog: ‘The video was recorded during my lunch break from work. I got a soda from a customer but soon the bees stole it.’

The footage has since been met with an array of responses from social media users, with one congratulating ‘our insect overlords’. 

One user said: ‘That video is amazing but also terrifying. How the hell have they worked that out?’

While another added: ‘We can just hire them and pay them in Fanta.’

Meanwhile another person commented: ‘I for one welcome our insect overlords.’

In 2016, scientists at Queen Mary University of London found that drinking a small droplet of sweet sugar water allowed bees to enter a positive emotion-like state. 

During their study, researchers trained bumblebees to find food at a blue flower but no food at a green flower before testing the insects on a new ambiguous blue-green flower

They found that bees that had been given a droplet of sugared water prior to being set loose took less time to land on the blue-green flower. 

Scientists said that this indicated that the sweet water raised the mood of the bees and allowed them to enter an emotional state similar to human optimism.     

Senior author Professor Lars Chittka said: ‘The finding that bees exhibit not just surprising levels of intelligence, but also emotion-like states, indicates that we should respect their needs when testing them in experiments, and do more for their conservation.’

Meanwhile co-author Luigi Baciadonna said: ‘Sweet food can improve negative moods in human adults and reduce crying of newborns in response to negative events. 

‘Our results suggest that similar cognitive responses are occurring in bees.’ 

In 2011, another study by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found that bees were most efficient when they fed on more sugary, or viscous, nectar.

Lead researcher John Bush and his team made their discovery when they compared the pollinating habits of bees, who dip their tongues in and out of flowers, alongside bats, butterflies and moths – who suck up nectar through long, narrow tubes, or proboscis.

The team discovered that suction feeders were most efficient at taking up nectar containing 33 per cent sugar, while a more viscous and sweeter 52 per cent concentration was ideal for bees.    

Professor Bush later said: ‘Do the flowers want a certain type of bug or bird to pollinate them? And are they offering up the nectar of their preferred pollinator? 

‘It’s an interesting question whether there’s a correlation between the morphology of the plant and the morphology of the insect.’ 

While Steven Childress, an emeritus professor of mathematics at New York University, added: ‘I think it’s an interesting finding.

‘He’s painting together the fluid dynamics of feeding, and the energy intake of nectar, in a way that shows the drinking technique is tailored to the viscosity of the nectar itself.’ 

In 2018, Harvard University researchers revealed how a swarm of bees will stick together and move in unison when their nests are rattled.

Scientists spent months shaking and rattling swarms of thousands of honeybees to understand how the insects can work together to keep their swarm in one piece.

They discovered that bees can sense the direction their neighbours are moving in and follow the movements of their fellow insects.
