Nature abounds in examples of swarming, a form of collective behavior found in insect and animal societies. Glowworms use simple signaling and attraction mechanisms to congregate into large swarms for the purpose of mass mating. Ants use trail-laying and trail-following behaviors to self-organize into complex foraging patterns; ants gathered in groups can carry prey that are so large that if they were fragmented, the members of the group would be unable to carry all the fragments individually. Honeybee swarms use group decision making to find a future nest: some of the bees, called scout bees, find potential sites in all directions and advertise a dozen or more of them to recruit other bees to visit these sites, but eventually they reach a consensus about a single site.
