I try not to think what is nonnative or native. I try to respect all living things. It's not their fault they ended up where they shouldn't be. Regardless, I had to do what I had to do without breaking the bank.

We also gotta kill the native bees. The invasive bees can spread pathogens to them or they can just get pathogens normally, and the only way to protect the environment is to kill the native bees so they don't further spread pathogens. So this is actually a really good thing.

That's basically the same as saying "let's kill all humans to stop the spread of Coronavirus".
Sure, you're removing the problem but you're not exactly solving it.

By killing all bees you'd bring most food production to a standstill and wipe out most fauna and numerous flora, so by destroying one the other will all be doomed. You can have both!

You’re digging up some bad history with this necro-post!

"The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer." Prov. 30:25  

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.
