They be ballin.

Chris Deo says:

The honey bees are able to survive at a slightly higher temperature than the hornets, the bees are exploiting this fact. The venting meant the outside of the swarm is cooler is a safer way of going about this, rather then being in more contact with the temperatures that come close to killing the bees too

Just found this channel, and it reminds of the days when buzzfeed used to actually produced clean, crisp and fun factual videos instead of bombarding everything with feminism or supporting this and that and making statements all the time… Subscribed~ ❤️

WRONG!

This video gives the impression that the honeybees have some sort of chance to defend themselves against an attack by an incredible small number of giant wasps. By small I mean a swarm of under 50 can destroy a colony of 10's of thousands in a few hours. This was an "EXPERIMENT" in a controlled environment under idea conditions for the honeybees.
