Hornet cooked by bees

Hornet cooked by bees
We all know that honeybees sting.

We even know that honeybees have a bite with venom — like a snake.

But did you know that honeybees can cook … hornets to death. Here’s a video from National Geographic showing Japanese honeybees in action. (Apis mellifera can do the same.)

Unfortunately, we don’t think there are too many cooks to cope with the Asian Hornet which is invading parts of Europe.
