Beetle gets OWNED!!
« on: September 06, 2009, 01:59:11 AM »
My bees did not take kindly to this large green fruit beetle inviting itself in.



Edit: Around 20 seconds into the clip, one bee decides she's had enough of this and climbs (from the beetle's back) up to the ceiling where she starts spreading alarm pheromone. Right away, more bees arrive in force and they finish pushing the beetle off the hive. (The drama had been going on for five minutes or so.)

Cheryl, a job well done, by you and the bees. Isn't it interesting how they just take care of things when they can.  The was a pretty big bug, and for them to just push her off, simply marvelous!!!  Thanks for sharing.  Have that most wonderful and great day, great health.  Cindi
