I've been observing my bees and the evil red ants attacking them. I noticed a peculiar ant behavior. When a bee lands on the ground and seems distracted, an ant tries to "hijack" the bee. :? I know its weird. For whatever reason, ants actually ride on the bee! Of course, the bee immediately tries to get rid of the ants by flying high and then crashes down on the floor. This crash must be so hard on the ants that they loose grip of their bee ride and then the bee flies away unhurt but sometimes, if there's too many ants, the bee gets badly injured and ends up a snack for the ants.
