    30 Hornets Invade and Kill 30,000 Bees

    I have a mortal fear of hornets, wasps, and bees. I hate them. I hate them a lot. I have absolutely no fear of anything else, trust me when I say that. I can walk up to a bear, tiger, or hold up a wild snake, been there done that. But I've never been stung before because the moment I see a bee, I either blast them with a hose or run like a girl in the other direction. When I was five, I used to wear a striped black and yellow shirt that magically seemed to repel bees - I called it the Bumblebee shirt. It's not exactly a phobia because I can be around them if I want, but a few childhood experiences sort of traumatized me.

    I hate em so damn much but at the same time they seem interesting. Here's a cool video I came across about 30 hornets that invade a bee hive and destroy 30,000 of its inhabitants. I didn't know who the hell to cheer for but I still have respect for these critters.

    Been posted before but still cool to watch. These hornets are a force to be respected.

    You've walked up to bears and tigers? Were they babies?

    Oh, and you root for the bees, and against the hornets.

    Those giant hornets appear very nasty. Dismemberment for the win!

    quite old, special note, those are Japanese Giant Hornets, not your garden variety normal sized hornets. Note the massive size diff. between the attacking hornets and defending honeybees.

    Each one of those giant hornets is about the size of your thumb.

    I think I just found a solution the the world's overpopulation: giant hornets.

    Also, I remember in physics we learned about how the only way bees really kill hornets and the like is to just swarm them and wait for their bodies to overheat.

    If they were African bees that may have been a different story.
