Ants stealing from bees?
Hey bee reddit!
I’m an ant keeper, and my knowledge of bees is pretty limited compared to my ant knowledge. However, I do know that ants steal from bee hives, and can be a huge nuisance to beekeepers.
I’m putting together a documentary on ants, with special focus on ants’ relation to humans and other animals. I think it would be pretty interesting to film ants interacting with a bee hive, and maybe how a beekeeper might combat this. How doable is this?
I have beekeepers in my local area, but would they be receptive to this? Also is it feasible to film something like this while assuring the bees’ quality of life?
Thanks in advance!
