Pheromone behaviour could be interpreted as aiding the return of a queen to her nest, and under natural conditions might occur after the nest has been disturbed by a predator or after a queen has left to mate. The return of a queen to such a queenless colony enhances the scenting and fanning as bees move toward her.
It is not clear whether reduction in the circulation of queen pheromone by direct antennal contact would allow the queen’s absence to be appreciated so quickly by this method alone, or whether another more volatile pheromone, perhaps the same as that operating within a broodless, combless cluster (page 25) also normally signals the presence of the queen within the nest. If so, perhaps different categories of workers respond more readily to the different stimuli. Certainly, workers of a queenless colony immediately perceive the return of their queen.
Queen Trail Pheromone
An object that has been in contact with a queen becomes attractive to workers. Butler (1969) found that a cage occupied by a queen does not lose its attractiveness completely until 90 minutes after the queen had been removed. Juska (1978) monitored the attractiveness of a cage, the mesh of which was covered with beeswax, suspended in the brood chamber of a colony. The number of bees clustered on the cage diminished to about half, 20 minutes after the queen had been removed, and to about one—fifth after a further 20 minutes. Hence, queen pheromone deposited on the wax was sufficiently persistent to suggest that the widespread trails made by the queen on the surfaces of combs form an additional means by which the queen’s presence is communicated within the hive (see page 37); this would explain why bees of a queen’s court that have lost contact with her often examine with their pheromone scents.

Pheromone Behavior In Humans
There’s a lot of inner pheromone issues involved here. Something that I feel girls are a little bit responsible for, where guys feel ashamed for showing a sexual vibe. I’m involved in club promotion work a lot and often end up going out with 30-40 girls and a few guysregularly, which gives me a fair amount of insight into female behaviour. I have noticed something that I find hilarious. Consistently, consistently, consistently . Girl meets guy, guy tries to escalate pretty quickly, girl says to male friend “oh he’s a bit sleazy … blah blah blah … he’s a tacky make out guy.” Couple hours or minutes later, she disappears out the club with him.

Pherazone is a popular pheromone people use and was recently reviewed at http://julesjacobs49.edublogs.org/2015/01/05/pherazone-review/.
Well girls may often talk about how they don’t like guys who escalate and it’s a bit sleazy, but what they say and what they do is often very different when they are in the presence of his natural pheromones scent. So don’t be afraid to escalate, what’s the worst that can happen? Worst case, you get a mini rejection. Going off on a tangent here. Often we talk about approach anxiety, but I think it’s misleading, it’s more a form of escalation anxiety. Approach anxiety is about taking that first step of escalation, talking to the girl.
