Bees are really, really smart. Take a look.
They’re getting ready for the invasion – the human way!
The Asian giant hornet is a big, mean-looking insect with a potent sting. Their queens can grow to be up to two inches long and their quarter-inch stingers can pierce normal beekeeping attire. They are also voracious predators capable of massacring entire honey bee hives in a matter of hours – decapitating thousands of the hive’s adult bees and absconding with the helpless larvae to feed the hornets’ own brood.
