I used to watch fire ants attack these big black wood ants. The red ones would gang up on the big ones and just keep stinging them until they died. It's funny how we live on such a savage world. I guess that's why we try to be civilized.

Nothing to see here.

ants would win, no doubt about it.



Nope
In one episode even though the ants outnumbered the termites by about 5/1 they couldnt break through the defences in the passageways of the termite mound.....those termites are tough li'l mofo's yes.gif

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.


Yes! I have seen what you speak of. Some insects are so much more intelligent than people give them credit for.

I thought that video was sad and awesome at the same time.

I started a small war between rolly pollies and ants. It was pretty epic. I was on the rollypollie side, so I gathered the surviving pollies, put them in a jar and fed them until the ants left. Then I killed all the ants.

Yay!

Anyting with more than 4 legs is terryfying and/or annoying,but we should still give them our respect, unless they come in the house and wont leave, then they need to die.

In India, We had a King Cobra live in our house for a long time. I never saw it as it lived there when my Dad was growing up. He said it was acout 15 feet and lived there for 7 years. It came and went as it pleased.

If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. The smallest act of kindness can be the greatest thing in the world.
