Another unexpected bee predator. Was going to feed bees at one of our beeyards and saw these feeding on our feeding bees. Can't believe how easy it is for other insects to eat bees. The one bee didn't even get upset when the wheel bug reached out and touched her eye. These bugs just suck the life out of their victims. Something in their bite must paralyze cause there is little movement in their victims. Compare this with the movement of the bee the mantis caught. I had over 12 minutes of video for this one. Wish I could have uploaded all of it. They are amazing creatures to watch.
Again, if anyone has any suggestions on how to upload these videos with a higher resolution I would welcome any advice.
