Beewolf wasp buries bee alive

This 4 August 2017 shows a beewolf wasp burying a bee alive.

The female wasp does that to provide food for her youngsters. The smaller male wasps of this species don’t do that, they feed on nectar.

Albert Jacobs made this video near Venhorst village in North Brabant province in the Netherlands.
