Ihr kennt vielleicht diesen Clip von japanischen Hornissen, die ein Massaker unter Bienen veranstalten. Was ich nicht wusste: Japanische Bienen haben einen Abwehrmechanismus gegen die Viecher entwickelt, das sogenannte Bee-Balling: Die Bienen formen einen dichten und vibrierenden „Ball“ um die Hornisse und erhöhen damit die Körpertemperatur des Insekts, bis es wortwörtlich zu Tode gekocht wird.…

Marijuana-Honey from ganja-trained Bees

Der französischer Imker Nicolas Trainerbees hat ’ne Methode entwickelt, um Bienenstöcke Cannabis-Honig produzieren zu lassen. Dazu hat er die Bienen darauf trainiert, flüssiges Cannabis-Harz (Haschisch-Öl, nehme ich an) in ihren Waben zu verbauen. Stoned werden die Bienen dabei anscheinend nicht: „The bees that produce the cannahoney are not affected by cannabinoids because they do not…
