Japanese Giant Hornet Vs Honey Bees

[Media: Video]

This is a fantastic National Geographic video of Japanese Hornets waging war upon European Honey Bees. I never imagined that 10 wasps would take out 10,000 bees in a couple of hours. Near the end of the war, there is literally a sea of severed bees heads. But don't worry, the Japanese Honey Bees have a secret weapon against the Wasps.

The footage in this video is just amazing. I have no idea how they got cameras inside the hives, under the ground and flying alongside the wasps.
