Do Bees fight?
I have a dead tree stump which for the past couple of years has had a bumble bee nest. This year some small bumble bees began a nest and around the other side a larger species of bumble bee began another. Wonderful I thought, lovely to see them whizzing in and out.
However over the last few days I've found several dead small bees at the base of the stump. Does anyone know why this may be? Do bees fight between colonies? Or might it be that the little ones went into the wrong entrance and were attacked?
