Have you ever thought of bees and wasp as being predators of hummingbirds before? If you are like me, then this had never occurred to you before. I recently discovered that bees and wasp can indeed be predators of the hummingbird. Let me explain.
It seems that other insects, particularly bees and wasps have the ability to sometimes out-maneuver and attack a hummingbird. The result of a single sting may be fatal to a hummingbird, because there is so little body mass to absorb the venom.
Many people who have hummingbird feeders commonly complain about the problem of bees and wasp and they wish to know how to keep them away from their feeders, but I’ll bet very few of us, if any of us, knew that these insects could actually be considered predators of the hummingbird. Now that we do it is very important to solve the problem of these pests at your hummingbird feeders. After all, none of us, I am quite sure, would want to see these insects cause the death of a hummingbird.
