I did a Google search and found a couple of articles right away. I was wrong about the bee's free flying. The YouTube video shows exactly how to use the bee's to make a detector.

USA Today article.

YouTube on Bee's and bombs.
Not what you want to hear but the best bomb detector is, a sniffer dog.

When I saw the question that is exactly what I thought.

They have also been working with bee's (yes the insects) and found them to be good at picking up explosives also. They train them to be alert for the smell of explosives by using nectar feeders next to explosive caches. The bee's associate the smell of the explosives with a source of nectar and they will then mass around any such smell they run across believing that there is some of their favorite food nearby.

Even though they have tried and made much progress, mechanical noses are just not that good. And smell is the best way to detect chemicals without having to sample everything.
