Nice Story!
I think that bees have an adaptive advantage over wasps & hornets in that they have to think before they sting. They only get one shot. Years ago I stepped in a wasps’ nest while hiking. Aproximately 10 minutes after ridding my poor tender flesh of these brave home-defenders (let’s be honest, they had good reason to attack), I saw one still trying to sting me through my wool sock.
