I have noticed this new bug since having chickens. Naturally, you get flies on chicken poo, but there is this little black bee looking bug that zooms around and plucks these flies up and carries them off, guess thats what they eat, but what is this bee bug called? Its black with a white stripe on it, and kinda looks like a huge fly, but it is a bee looking bug, making any sense?? lol

Sounds like a white faced hornet

If it is your could be very lucky! These are verashous fly eaters. thay will eat hounderds of flys a day. Bob is right there is probibly a nest around somewhare unless it is someware whare you can't possably avoid it just leave it alone. It is nice to know whare it is at so you know whare to avoid though. The nest would liik somthing like this.

It can be on a tree or bush, hi or low and sometimes even under the eves of a house. hope this helps

thats a hornet . they build cone shaped nests from wood (the first paper makers ) grey in color . there is probably one close by .on a tree limb in a tree or bush some times near the ground but usually higher . if you see it stay a way . i have watched them many times catching flies . they swoop down on a setting fly and wrap their legs around them and fly away .
