    Angry Bee Assassin caught on film.

    These guys have been showing up all over my yard since I placed my hives. They are getting pretty bold and pulling bees right off the hive.

    Is it a Box Elder?

    They look a little like Box Elder bugs, but this is literally a "Bee Assassin Bug." They usually sit on flowers and wait for bees, but they have been getting pretty bold in my bee yard lately.

    Assassin bugs are so cool. Hadn't seen one with those markings though. The ones we have around here are simply black and brown. Rather boring.
