thanks Tleilaxu.It's not as easy as it sounds. The males are extremly dumb and will only drink a 2:1 sugar water mixture. If you want to feed them honey, they have to be forced fed.They only live a week of so away from thier territory.:(

Andrew: Just curious, but if one were to wish to observe a social bee/wasp colony, what species would be best? Take colony size(adios Apis mellifera), aggressiveness, and ease of feeding into mind.
