We shall fight them on the concrete!

We shall fight them on the hives!

We shall fight them in the air!

Looks like a very personal response.

They're back! I saw 2 European Hornets snatching honey bees at dusk this evening. I guess everything is happening early this year.

Raids are on the increase. I used my trusty cap to knock down and kill 3 hornets in front of my home hives yesterday. I was able to kill 3 of the queens very early in the season and hate to think about the number of European Hornets I would be dealing with if all had established nests.
