Just what all of you have awaited with bated breath!  Bees are the 
favorite meal of Merops apiaster, the bee-eater bird. Common predators 
are kingbirds, mockingbirds, beewolves, and dragonflies. Other predators 
include various arachnids, toads, skunks, and other bees. (Also, humans 
should be mentioned) I completed added searching and found zero 
references to bats consuming bees.  Sigh ....

PS Whew ... what a relief that the bat-man is done.
