These bees are a pain in the butt, they make 5 times the noise of a big fly, and worse, look for holes and other areas where they can hide to make even more noise. It was a pleasure to see it getting caught and eaten! Apples, cucumbers, plums, beans, macadamia nuts. Just the beginning, better than last year, looking forward to increasing crops, varieties and automation.
