10 Shocking Ways Insects Have Been Used In Warfare
Drug Sniffer Bees
Since we’ve found that bees have an amazing sense of smell, which is quite similar to sniffer dogs, we have also found that they can be trained to detect illegal drugs. In various bee experiments, scientists have found that bees can actually differentiate between heroin and cocaine, making them the perfect substitute to dogs, thus making bees a safer and more portable substitute to dogs.
Landmines Sniffer Bees
Since we already have dogs and electronic devices to show us where these landmines are, however, biologists in Croatia decided it would be a good idea to try to develop and train a new strain of sniffing bees, claiming that these sniffer insects can detect landmine’s and IED’s faster than sniffer dogs and as far as 3 miles away.
