Honey bees also use two types of the waggle dance to direct others to food sources closer to home. The round dance is a series of narrow circle looking movements that alerts their family to the existence of food within 1968.5 inches of the hive. This dance only communicates the direction of the prey, not the distance. The sickle dance is a wrench -shaped pattern of moves that alerts workers to food supplies within 50-150 meters from their hive. The waggle dance talk was first recognized by Aristotle around 330 BC.
