    Fun fact: Japanese honey bees have their own defence mechanism against wasps that invade their territory. They surround the invader in the hundreds and vibrate their flight muscles violently, increasing the temperature to 115F and raising the carbon dioxide level hugely - slowly cooking and asphyxiating the invading wasp to death.

    Of course, other honey bees don't have such a defense mechanism and are easy prey for a pack of hornets.
