Probs a silly question

But how do Bee's mate :unsure:

Came across a large red and black bee, and on its back there was a yellow and black one.

Now i thought bee's only mated in the hive, queen etc?

I watched them for a while and the yellow ones tail bit seemed to be going to the red ones tail bit :icon_redface: Then the red one flew off with the yellow one still on its back.

Where they mating or was the yellow one killing the red :blink:

MOLL.

I've noticed BT, last years Lowther was a fookin' nightmare for wasps, they were all over everything, you couldn't sit down for a pint without them landing in your hair....or your pint!!

Didn't see a one this year, seen none in the garden either.

its not a very clear photo but i think its a wood wasp , but there are a number of difrent speices of wood wasp . the long thing that looks like a sting is what the female uses to bore holes in wood to lay eggs and is not a sting.

Wasps are scarce this year, probably due to

the amounts of Ficam D, getting pumped into

the atmosphere.

 

A lot of queens may have been killed, but then

again it could be down to climate.

 

Duz. :D
