I am studying social hunting crackles. The main ingredients are. Two kinds of Chipia Shinagapachi, Marginata Chipia Polistes Ropalidia marginala (Photo 2) and Orca Formis Ropalidia cyaihifonnis (Photo 3). These are the "paper pachinko j" As it is called paper wasps, it is a plant With paper made from Se J Lerose fiber taken from the throat Make a nest. The point that there is a hexagonal atrioventricular chamber in the nest Is similar to a bee nest, but larger in size Much smaller and therefore the number of bees on the nest Is also a little. So put a mark on all the bees The behavior of one individual, the relationship with another, Details such as the degree of contribution to the development of the colony You can observe it well. These bees and a more developed society Among the ants and bees that make, there are many There is an interesting difference. Ants and bees The colony of Chipia Shinagapachi I don't have a clear queen. In the colony All the bees are apparently similar. Shi However, at some point, Marginata Chipia One individual in Shinagapachi, Orca for Miss A small number of female individuals are the opportunity for Chipia Shinagapachi Being a talented queen (spawner). Tsuma The bees in the colony fight each other The winner will be the next queen of the colony Normally, this individual was also eventually attacked by another female individual on the nest and expelled. Because she is robbed of her queen's seat.
