    Default yellow jackets

    I got a couple questions about YJ's. Checked bees and put 2/1 feed in frame feeder 4 days ago. Everything fine and dandy. checked yesterday and lots of dead bees(100,not drones) around front entrance and yellow jackets(dozen or so). Do the yellow jackets actually kill the bees or do they expose them to the elements-it was in the 40's and rainy during the 4 day stretch. Also will a entrance reducer 3/8 inch help. The other hive is great and no sign of dead bees. Both hives were strong. thanks

    I have watched a YJ grab a bee and bite its head off and fly off with the body
