I have 1 weak hive that I've been nursing along. About three weeks ago I requeened with a new Itallian in hopes of a quicker build up since the old queen was almost 2 yrs old. She was there last week and so I thought everything was going to be alright. BUT! Now I've seen small Yellow Jackets in and around the hive and could not find the queen. Ive gone through the hive 4 times looking for her, She's gone and lost forever
So now my question is! Will Yellow Jackets hunt down and kill queens in the hive?
