    What is the best way(short of spraying around hives) to control the b------s??
    They are trying to rob the hives, Thank goodness for slatted Vent. boards, and are ambushing my bees, killing them and flying off w/their bodies.

    Set up the traps for wasps / yellow jackets to catch them.
    Find the nests and destroy them. They are using the bee parts to feed the larve.
    The problem will end this year when they stop rearing young.

    swat them with a fly swatter . I keep one handy when I see them here. I swat them easy, they're not fast.
