ABSTRACT
The article reports on the invention made by the Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists, under the Stealthy Insect Sensor Project, which uses honeybees' sense of smell as an explosive detector system in the U.S. According to investigator Tim Haarmann, they harness the insect's olfactory sense by using its natural reaction to nectar which responds to a scent. They are determined that the bees could detect explosive devices in the presence of interfering agents like lotions and motor oils.
