    Yes they do, among other insects.  Hornets can cause huge problems for beekeepers, especially the Asian giant hornet.  Te Asian giant hornet’s main food source is bees, and they can eliminate an entire colony in only a few hours!

    The Asian Giant Hornet is one clear example of wasps that hunt and eat bees. They are the world’s largest hornet native to tropical Eastern Asia. The hornets often attack honey bee hives with the goal of obtaining their larvae. The wasps are destructive when they attack bee hives, with a single hornet able to kill as many as 40 honey bees per minute. It only takes a small number of individual wasps to destroy a 30,000 member bee hive in a matter of hours.
