The 'wave' is used to repel wasps, and is referred to as 'shimmering' in a cluster of bees.
"Bees in the outer layer thrust their abdomens 90° in an upward direction and shake them in a synchronous way. This may be accompanied by stroking of the wings. The signal is transmitted to nearby workers that also adopt the posture, thus creating a visible, and audible 'ripple' effect across the face of the comb."
I've never raised bees but an uncle did. I have helped him take the honey on a number of occasions
and learned enough about it I didn't want to ever raise bees for fun or profit. I don't use much honey
and my needs then and now can be fulfilled at the corner grocery. My only use of honey now is to
sweeten my tea and use occasionally with my pancakes.
