In this video, Yuichi, a local beekeeper in Japan, demonstrates how to protect native Japanese honey bees from the attacks of Japanese giant hornets.
The hornets are known to target honeybee colonies to steal pupae, larvae, and honey. Yuichi shows a unique method of capturing hornets using a glue sheet for mice.
When a hornet gets trapped on the adhesive sheet, it releases pheromones that attract fellow hornets, leading them to also get stuck on the sheet.
This technique helps protect Japanese honey bees from these aggressive predators.
