摘要Predators use olfactory, visual and sometimes acoustic cues from the preys to assess food information. However, it is not known if the aggressive hornets (Vespa spp.) use olfactory, visual, or both types of information to find and recognize prey. In the present study, we trained hornet workers (Vespa velutina) to a feeding area. Once the hornets began consistently foraging at this feeding area, we determined whether they located prey (bees, Apis cerana) via olfactory or visual cues. We did this by testing whether hornets were attracted to a dummy bait (bee dummy bait or non-bee dummy bait) treated with extracts of honeybee cuticular hydrocarbons. We then tested whether hornets could distinguish between bee dummy bait and cotton ball dummy bait, both treated with bee odors. Hornets preferred the dummy treated with bee odors, and bee dummies (with bee images) were more attractive to the hornet than the cotton ball dummies with only bee odors. These results clearly indicate that a combination of olfactory and visual cues helps the hornet to locate its prey.
