    That one had me laughing out loud. I have a spastic dog, too, so I can understand that. I think I'd rather have this problem than the one I do: My neighborhood is pretty much over-run by hornets, *grrrr* so there aren't many in the way of bees. Makes gardening kinda difficult.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you!

    Not being familiar with the insects of North America, I have to guess that hornets are bigger than bee's (the few we see here in the UK are).

    So from what I recall of my fathers bee keeping, he used some sort of system on the hives to keep most of the wasps out (not 100% guaranteed - but reasonably successful) so couldn't you do the same to keep hornets out of a hive ??

    I have not been able to learn the difference between wasps, hornets, yellowjackets, etc. (the only difference I see is a slight difference in color). They are all hostile and destructive as far as I'm concerned. All I know is, I don't see bees here.

    Up in the sac area there is a nasty mud wasp that is sting happy...

    I don't have any hard knowledge on breed or anything, I just have encountered them a few times while hitting the river.
