Re: OT: weather and bees

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

Although I now regret opening the topic of bees--it has almost taken over
the list--I will answer this question.

Usually there are no problems with most wasps and bees, they simply ignore
one another.  However, there are wasps called "Bee Wolves" which hunt down
and capture bees on the wing.  The bees are used as food for the wasps'
young; the wasps themselves feed mostly on nectar.
