Why do bees dream?

Bees dream at night much like humans do. They also awake just as the sun comes up.

They don't have REM (rapid eye movement) sleep patterns but research shows the length and quality of their sleep correlates well with a bee's innate ability to return to flowers with particular colours and smells.

Dreams help them store their memories.

Purple/pink flowers are known to help with anxiety and sleep, like valerian flowers. The elder 'gatherer bees' often fly up to 3000 meters from the hive as the sun starts to set to gather nectar from these particular flowers.

Humans have their habits too. What's your routine to help you dream at night? Does a good night's sleep help your memory of recent events, names and you appointments?
