400,000 bees found in infested camper

Here's an interesting story I saw online about what is possibly the largest yellow jacket hive ever discovered that was found in a pop-up camper:

All I ask is everyone bee nice! Well that and a recount. I find it hard to believe it was an even 400k.

Yeah they had to have counted a least one twice. I guess they were beeing nice and sitting still.

A true story, I had a friend that tended bees on our farm in Maryland. He came one day and extracted honey and left the extractor on an enclosed porch just off the kitchen that of course was no real problem except the bee came back and retrieved their honey that was still on the equipment! I open the door not expecting bees to be inside and you could not see the other end of the porch for the bees! I did not stick around to count them but I can tell you there were a lot of bees!

Bee stings...yeh.

On the farm we had many honey bee hives. Growing fruit trees they really help in the spring time. Honey bees are for sure worker bees. You leave them alone and they will leave you alone. They have 1 mission, keep the hive fed

Yellow jackets like in that PU, they are long lost relations of the honey bees.... The angry types. Those you really want to get out of their way, they are figitty and will sting just being there.
