Just watched on National Geographic. A fight between hornets and bees.
The hornets just tear the bees apart! You see how nature can be cruel.
Even if the bees are in majority, a group of 30 hornets can easly kill a full bees nest!

Oh the documentry is called "Insect Wars".
So I apologize for the topic title.

There are also fighting other insect against each other, like ants vs termites.
It's realy intresting to watch this!

That was awsome. Im glad we dont have hornets over here they seem very ferocious. I have witnessed over here a army of fire ants totally decimate a huge colony of normal black garden ants. Then the blighters noticed me and the entire army went after me. 10 to 11 you cant feel stinging and biting you on your hand but 40 to 50 you begin to feel it and the young queens have a nasty bite. I love fire ants they are almost like army ants just not as deadly.

When I lived in SC I used to get attacked at least every week by fire ants when I'd do the gardening!  They are sneaky and painful!

Bees don't have mandibles capable of biting...Hornets do. Hornet venom is 10 times stronger than bee venom.

I have to clear one thing up although. The bees in the link are EUROPEAN honey bees. The Japanese honeys bees can easily kill  the hornets. The japanese Hornets attack by sending a scout that sprays the bee's nest with a phermone, then the scout flies back and leads the army to the battleground. The Japanese honeybees kill the scout by jumping on it until the bees smother the hornet. Then they vibrate their bodies, raising the temperature inside to 120 degrees F, frying the hornet alive. They stop the war before it begins.

I love to watch insects go to war with each other. grin2.gif Like if you put ants from different colonies together in on jar. Or ants versus a caterpillar, or fire ants versus a nest of baby mice who parents were shot by me with an air-rifle. innocent.gif  And when I was younger  I had this little ant-maze and I would put ants in with beetles, bug galdiators! laugh.gif

I was a strange child. innocent.gif Maybe I'll find my ant maze, that was fun. thumbsup.gif

I used to put spiders in the same jar, and they would attack each other while building webs for defense.

Ya'll are sick.

I had some hornets living under my steps.  I sat down and had a talk with them one day.  I told them if you leave alone and stay out of the house I'll leave ya'll alone.  It worked never had any problems with them. They use to make the cat nervous though.
