I saw Cindi's post on hornets and yellow jackets and it reminded me of this video.  I don't know if this was shared on the forum before but it's so fascinating I had to link it.

If the automobile had followed the same development cycle as the computer, a Rolls-Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year, killing everyone inside.

That was fascinating. I know when my bees are attacking the hornets that come around, they make a ball around the hornet and I thought they were suffocating the hornet, but who knows, maybe they are trying to heat up the hornet.

Perhaps they are trying to do what the Japanese bees do.
