Help I saw this alien, crazy looking bug at my apiary. It was so weird looking I had to look it up and I found what it is. A horrid creature called a cow killer. it is a wasp but looks like an ant ,and is said to have a sting strong enough to kill cattle. Well guess what they kill bees any suggestions??? I am going out right now and pouring what borax I have in the crevise I saw it crawl in. It was such a odd looking bug, pretty in fact that I was stunned enough not to be fast enough to squish it with my shoe.
