New Criminology Tools – Bees as Crime Solvers

Now that is something you don’t read every day:

What are the discoveries so far?

Criminology is not my specialty so I wonder how much of this is actually new (paging Chris Uggen ). The direct application of bee behavior to criminal behavior works basically like this:

"Instead of using information about the distribution of flowers visited by bees to explain the insects’ behaviour, criminologists’ models will use details about crime scenes, robbery locations, abandoned cars, even dead bodies, to hone the search for a suspect."

It will be interesting to see if the model matches reality.
