The bees in Vietnam have launched a sting operation against those vicious killing horns – according to a report, with their hives lined with boobies.
Researchers at the University of Guelph in Ontario have been stunned by the new use of animal excreta in bees.
They also noted that worker bees sometimes use soap stains and, in one case, human urine for the same purpose.
When attacks by killer hornets occur frequently, researchers surveyed 72 beekeepers in late August.
Of those, only five had colonies of Western bees – CNN reports citing that caretakers did not find poop in their forces.
But of the remaining beekeepers who kept the eastern bees, 63 recorded boob points on the front of their forces.
The beekeepers had an average of 15 colonies – and the caretakers reported seeing an average of 74 percent feces in their colonies.
The boob appeared after attacks by killer horns, and the researchers determined that they would respond to the attacks. They found that colonies with heavy and moderate boobs were less likely to be attacked.
“This study demonstrates a remarkable characteristic of having to defend themselves against the worst predators,” lead author Heather Mattila said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Western bees – found in North America – are not as ready for killing horns as they are in the East.
“They didn’t get a chance to build defenses,” Matila said. “It’s like going into the cold of a war.”
There have been murder horns recently that are native to Asia Went to North America, Last month entomologists from the Washington State Department of Agriculture destroyed a nest they had in October.
They found about 200 queens, each capable of building their own nests.
The state’s first giant hornet was caught in July, and many more were later captured across Watcom County, state agriculture officials said.
