I have never experienced this before, but is it normal for wasps to attack and dismember Honey bees? For at least ten years there has bee a Honey bee nest at the top of this old building where i work. I always see the bees flying about and landing on the tarmac. I was standing in the car park with a collegue when we noticed a Wasp attacking two individual bees on the ground. Flying from one to the other. The bees were still moving (only just) but the Wasp started to bite off body parts. I was taken aback by this behaviour. What was the Wasp doing and why?
