Awesome. Bee's as well as hornets and wasps are vicious stinging annoyances. I wish that they would ALL become extinct. It seems that they just look for ANY reason to dive-bomb a person to sting them. Be gone, ALL of them stinging bastards!!

Are you a troll? or just ignorant?


Without Bees you wouldn't even BEE here to talk rubbish.


I wish that all ignorant people would go extinct.

People are wondering where
all the bees went?

This must have a huge impact
if 30 hornets can kill all them bees.

You appear to be the "ignorant" one here for not 'getting it'. If you cannot sense a touch of facetiousness with a rant, then whose the actual "ignorant" one here?.
.

And yes, ignorant people SHOULD become extinct...


SIGH.

You sound creationist to me.

If you paid attention at the 1st video some hornet was being attacked by more than one european bee simultaneously. There was even one dead hornet on the floor. So the trait to gang up against the intruder is there.

Those colonies with a stronger ganging instict, especially against one scout, have better chances of survival. These stronger trait get preserved, the others go extinct. With time the size of the ball can only increase in dimension until it involves the colony as a whole. That's how evolution by natural selection works.

No not in the slightest, Darwin was spot on in my book. Just amazes me how they all work together to smother and heat up the hornet to death pure genius clever little critters.

I have a question? Were these Japanese hornets a native of the area or were they introduced into the environment? Obviously from the video, the japanese honey bees have a defense mechanism built in for this predator, so back to my original question, where were these honey bees attacked?
