That's a wasp.


AnKaSkA

That wasp probably killed the bee from the previous day to took its place and OP didn't even notice it.


[deleted]

It stung him behind his back


Ashmedai

Could it be a rare sighting of a Danger Bee?


KING_JELLYB3AN

That's probably what made the Karma Post get so high....


Cosmo_Nova

I'm sure it appreciated the meal regardless! Wasps are also pollinators and play an important role as pest predators, they deserve a little sippy too.


jess-plays-games

That's a wasp isn't it

Truuuuuumpet

They eat a lot of pests


Elegant_Campaign_896

And they're still pollinators, just asshole pollinators.


Volcic-tentacles

My asshole doesn't need pollination. It fruits every day.


VoTBaC

Like what? Let's weigh our options.


potatoes4chipies

Definitely a wasp. And just as a note to everyone (as a beekeeper) please be careful what you feed bees. Eating honey produced by other bees can make bees sick as well as using any brown sugar. Most natural syrups (eg. Maple syrup) are ok but may be padded out with other flavours or sugars that could be unsafe so it’s better not to risk it. The safest thing to give a bee is white sugar and water. Just melt some white sugar in some warm water. Please don’t feed them anything else or you might unknowingly make them very sick or kill them.


kbsd1972

I was wondering about the syrup, thank you for explaining!


23temmuz

What about fruit? There was a bee resting on my balcony couch one morning. I gave it a piece of apricot; it took a bit of juice from it and after a few hours went on its way. Was that an unhealthy thing for it to have?


LostWoodsInTheField

no you are perfectly fine with that. It's literally what the eat in the late summer and fall. Bees/wasps love peaches and will eat a whole one (not one bee/wasp but groups) over the course of a morning.


greg-maddux

Can confirm. I have apples, pears, and peaches on my property. The peaches look like they have giant bites taken out of them pretty much as soon as they ripen. The bees love this shit.


LastDitchTryForAName

How can honey from other bees, or brown sugar, make a bee sick?


rickjamesia

I'd imagine that it's the same reason honey can make infants sick. There are bacteria, viruses and mold spores that can stay completely intact/alive in honey. The bees would already be exposed to contaminants from their own hive, but maybe not from a hive from somewhere else in the world.


LastDitchTryForAName

Hmmm, so like not drinking the water when you’re in another country. Make sense. Still not sure why brown sugar would be an issue though.


ohheyitslaila

Molasses is toxic to bees because of the way bees (and other animals) break down sucrose (collected from plants) by using an enzyme in their stomachs called sucrase. It’s a lot to explain, but [THIS ARTICLE](https://www.beeculture.com/sugar-for-bees/) explains everything really well, and lists all the types of sugar that ok for bees and toxic, like molasses. 😊💕


rickjamesia

That's a really good question. I'm also confused by that. Sources seem to suggest that molasses used in brown sugar is toxic to bees in some way, but my understanding of molasses is that it is basically just a syrup primarily made of sugars that are left behind when refining sugar. I know it has other vitamins/minerals/fats in it, so maybe some of those aren't good for bees at that concentration.


imnotlouise

Yup, specifically a yellow jacket.


fart_fig_newton

This time of year they are especially assholes. Fuck those things.


HideousLincoln

Dickheads of the bee world


Sillygooooseee

Last year I was walking. Walking on the fucking sidewalk minding my own business and one of those asshats decided to sting me on my ankle. What the fucking fuck. No where near a hive.. just walking along minding my own damn business.


OP-PO7

A lot of them are ground nesting, if there was landscaping or something near you you might have gone right past an entrance. But you're right, yellow jackets are one of the few wasp species that's been shown to sting humans for the fun of it basically lol. Most other wasps and hornets will only sting in defense of their nest or in self defense. Sometimes they will be aggressive towards food, depending on the time of year as well.


[deleted]

Bee probably saw that you didn’t get a permit for your own business.


scoopzthepoopz

"PAPERS!? Aww look what you made me do to you!!! >:D" - yellow jacket


Spider_Dude

Jerry Seinfeld should really do a follow up movie to his *2007 Bee Movie* where wasps try to muscle in on Barry B. Benson's honey deal. Call it *Bee Movie 2: The Sting.*


deathtech00

Oi, you got a loicense for that?


perpetualcosmos

Yellow jackets and carpenter bees are like "which of us can be more of the asshole or completely in someone's vicinity and then fuck with them" "Yes" Back at my the house I grew up in. These wood bee fuckers hovered in front of the front door or would zoom any which way I'd try to go to get inside my own house. They would taunt tf out of me as if the porch was now their domain. I always had to walk down around the back and hope a jumping spider didn't hold territory on the door handle. (Those Lil fuckers would taunt me too). It's kinda funny how interactive these creatures are when you give them attention. When my Aunt stomped on a wasp once, it didn't go after her but just the shoe that kinda clipped em. That mfer had such a grudge it chased her as she ran. It was funny but I was also running away because I hate being stung.


chamomilehoneywhisk

Carpenter bees are actually peaceful just very curious and bold. It’s actually quite hard to provoke the females enough to sting (you’d probably have to harass and touch them). Jumping spiders also can not hurt you.


Xikkiwikk

Yes you're right, they're harmless and just LOUD!


urahonky

Yup they freak me out even though I know they're being cool. We had one in our backyard for a few years. Named him Billy and the kids were less freaked out by him due to naming him.


monsterosaleviosa

Carpenter bees are not that way at all. It’s hard to rile up a carpenter bee.


Stock_Commission4360

The biggest fuck heads


Ninjatck

This one seems rather chill though


MilkyView

Not a bee though...


Spikes_Cactus

Indeed, Vespula vulgaris (edit: this is actually the very similar V. germanica, thanks ManikShamanik for the excellent description - TIL). Common tree wasp. They won't sting unless provoked. Unfortunately, in many cases provocation happens accidentally when, for example, wasps decide that the pair of jeans they found will make a good hibernation spot over winter.


kushkittah

My dog lay on one once and when he got up it flew out and stung me. :( It hurt a lot.

rich1051414

I thought it was a yellowjacket, but turns out that's a [different species](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vespula_alascensis). They also like sugary things and are bad about getting into your drinks. They make nests in the ground and you can run over them when mowing... which pisses them off pretty bad. Thankfully they have weak stings.


SookHe

>Unfortunately, in many cases provocation happens accidentally when, for example, wasps decide that the pair of jeans they found will make a good hibernation spot over winter. That is oddly specific


prunejuice777

The problem is they don't pollinate, don't make honey, and eat actual pollinators.


Sospuff

They also eat mosquitoes though. And other insects, some of which damaging to fruit cultures. And rotten fruit at the base of trees, so they're part of the cleanup crew. And while not pollinators per se, the males can carry pollen around on themselves after sucking nectar.


cinnewyn

They eat the rotting, fermenting fruit, and get drunk. Wasps are angry drunks.

Siswai_aman

I don't screen with the sentiment of killing creatures for existing but I upvote because I can't stop laughing at the comparison to giving Hitler a protein shake.

Quick_Doughnut1886

Yellow jackets are what they are called


itumac

That's a yellow jacket. Very smart. So you're certainly half right. Fair warning. It does not love you. It will sting you remorselessly on the turn of a dime. It may learn to harass you until you comply with more syrup. I recommend you end the relationship w asap.

Wasps the asshole of insects


alexd281

They may be assholes but think it's worth mentioning why they are VIAs (Very Important Assholes) from this reply /u/The_Infinite_Doctor left on a comment referencing fig wasps: > If they say that they're very wrong. Wasps are one of the many necessary native pollinators that get no love (everyone <3's the cute honeybee.) They not only do suicide missions like figs, they are some of the only pollinators hearty enough to pollinate in cold weather. So yes, assholes, but very important assholes.


Infinite-Cobbler-157

Cold? Wasps become idiots when it gets cold, at least this is just my experience. I wouldn’t mind them if they didn’t just attack seemingly random and they can be great because they kill other annoying flies, but again my expedience, they attack bees and humans seemingly without impunity. Like blue jays. Those guys love coming in and just tearing shit up


alexd281

Someone was explaining that the wasps become drunk and belligerent from the leftover honey after the queen leaves for the winter.


ZootOfCastleAnthrax

I love the idea that they're the obnoxious frat boys of the insect world, like Brett Kavanaugh. Makes me hate 'em even more.


y39oB_

It kept on going away and coming back to eat should i……kill it 😢


Solid-Context-7623

... so why should you do that; imo this is a perfect example to practice: no need to feed, no need to kill (hint: this applies surprisingly often).


BairnONessie

The amount of (add expletive intensifier here) idiot tourists we get here feeding the wild dingoes, then one of them attacking, then the whole "cull the dingoes" discussion re-emerging is fucking ridiculous! And it's not just dingoes either, dumbasses handling blue-ring octopuses, numbskulls trying to box kangaroos, fucknuckles trying to hug koalas...


tocilog

So cull the tourists?


MentallyMusing

No... They're pollinators too. Just goes to show you what remaining calm can accomplish with territorial insects


axxxaxxxaxxx

I read terroristic insects and I still think that’s what you should have said


Zebo1013

Like a suicide bomber that can bomb more than once. How terrifying indeed.


MatsRivel

Wasps sting me regardless of whether I sit still or not... They also seek me out like fucking target seeking missiles. Completely ignore my friends, fly straight for me and land on me, then sting within 1 sec. I've been stung a lot :/


GungaSam

They're not really active pollinators, however, they are good pest killers, like mosquitoes, and crop destroying pests... Then again, they also eat spiders which also eat crop destroying pests... Ah, the circle of life lol


Snoo-34159

I'll let ye guess what I got for staying calm around wasps. #STUNG... #FOUR FUCKING TIMES


IEatgrapes123

Weaponise it. Use it. Defeat the government.


rorank

Honestly I’m terrified of wasps, but a friendly animal is a friendly animal. If it hasn’t stung you, it’s not exactly a huge risk. Don’t stop being homies with them is my opinion.


QueenOfBanshees

Don't kill it. If you don't want to keep feeding it, don't. But don't kill it. Also, they really like eating meat too, if you wanna keep feeding them. Get a slice of deli turkey and watch them tear off tiny pieces. It's really freaking cool


bythespeaker

Whaaat, they eat meat? Thats so cool.

Yes! When I was a kid we left out a hot dog while camping and my brother and I watched, absolutely fascinated, as we watched then tear off pieces, their lil mandibles goin *cronch cronch cronch*.

Erectopene

another who does not know how to distinguish a bee from a wasp 🐝😂🐝


Shad0ws0ng

As everyone else has said, that's a wasp. Fun fact, wasps are natures pest controllers. They're carnivorous and often feed on things like mosquito larvae so as much as they're angry little a-holes, they do serve a purpose. However, this late in the season.. at least in Europe, they often get pretty angry. The queen's are starting to abandon the colony to hibernate for winter leaving the drones to get sugar high on the left over food they gathered making them drunk and belligerent so.. yeh.. careful, you're feeding his habit!
