How do Japanese honey bees defend themselves from Japanese giant hornets?

they bite their eyes off
they sink them
they overheat them
they squeeze their reproductive organs
As a hornet enters the hive, a mob of hundreds of honey bees sur­rounds it in a ball, com­plete­ly covering it and pre­vent­ing it from reacting ef­fec­tive­ly. The bees vi­o­lent­ly vibrate their flight muscles in much the same way as they do to heat the hive in cold con­di­tion­s. This raises the tem­per­a­ture in the ball to the critical tem­per­a­ture of 46 °C.
