Other questions have asked about the significance of the bees and only pointed to symbolism but offered nothing as to what the bees symbolize. Or than the director has bees in the future as a nod to life continuing, etc. This question regards the specific interaction of K with the the bees.
When K sticks his hand into the hive he ponders a reaction for a quick moment before suddenly turning left to the hotel where Deckard has been hiding as if to say, "So there you are." It's filmed and acted as though the bees are giving K information on why he is there, Deckard's location.
I refuse to think that it is just happy film coincidence or common sense that whoever is farming these bees must live close by.. Why stick his hand in the hive then? Is he downloading information from the hive? Something happens there and the film makes a point to say so... or at least make me think something happens. It is this small gesture by K that always leaves me guessing about the bee hives scene below:
