Asian Bee-Eating Hornets

Kind of a fun bit of reporting from Out East.
The bees also exploit a unique bit of insect anatomy: The hornet doesn’t have a heart—literally and I suppose kind of figuratively when you think about it....
The bees can't get through the hornet shells with their stingers, so they came up with a pretty nifty alternative.

Love trumps hate! Or, hornets, anyway.

I'd never even heard of Asian giant hornets before.

Good Grief. Asian invaders, as if the honeybees don't have enough problems with varoa mites, colony collapse, cold, wet, etc. Keeping bees is a steep learning curve!
