    The Daily Mail - The Croatian 'bomb bees' that can sniff out landmines from THREE MILES away

    Pretty damned impressive - maybe we should send some to The Falkland Islands.

    A few years back DARPA did a similar thing, the Stealthy Insect Sensor Project. A British mental patient confined to a criminal ward in a mental hospital read about it and told the watch nurse about the article. The nurse wrote in her log, "Patient thinks bees can sniff out bombs", it was considered proof he was a crazy. There is a TED video about it called Strange Answers to the Psychopath Test.

    Correct climate is a ***** for the bees but why boredom? Falklands have thousands of landmines buried by Argentinian forces.
