Every time scientists do things like that they end up doing something dumb like releasing them. I believe the Japanese Beatles are another example of a bug experiment gone bad. Some people simply cannot leave well enough alone.

I object to this technology for one reason and one reason only.
Wasps were put on this planet as a cruel joke against me.
They turn up outdorrs when i am eating. They will find their way into my house. They will chase me round the garden, even when I am told to stand still and stop flapping, they will attack me. They will even sting me when i have done nothing to them whatsoever by sneaking up from behind and getting me in the neck.
I hate them!! I hate them so much!! I just wish they were all dead!! (My Annakin impression, incase you didnt get it)
For as long as I can remember, I have been at War with the wasps and I see no end in site until they or myself are dead
Now, I fear, I may lose this war, as they are able to locate my stash and steal it, or perhaps find themselves weapons to do me more harm. Only bad things can come of this. The end is nigh........
Bees appear even better able than dogs to detect particular odours, and roam large distances from the hive in search of food.
Scientists already know that their behaviour can be conditioned by rewards such as sugar-water.
Combining the scent of the sugar solution with tiny residues of TNT means that bees associate the "molecular trail" of TNT with food.
When a bee carrying this information returns to the hive, it will pass the knowledge of the scent and its location to thousands of other bees.
