Bee behaviour datamining: complete algoritm

In my previous post I described a “complete antmining algorithm”.

This post is much shorter: for bees it is the same as for ants, with one major difference : bees fly ! The do not use pheromones to mark their path, they dance in the hive to indicate direction and distance. So a bee, leaving the hive already knows where he is heading to. They observe the dancing bees in the hive and choose a distance/direction combination. If they find food they return home, otherwise they search randomly.

Other difference : they cannot continue searching until forever : after a certain time and nothing found, they return to the hive to find information where to find food.
