I checked with Louise Chambers, Ed. Director of the Purple Martin Conservation Association. Here is the scoop.

"Bees and martins are okay - we know of many martin landlords who are also beekeepers - martins will eat some drones but will not concentrate on picking off bees as they fly off from hive, etc. Martins are very eclectic
about what they eat, and don't focus on any one food source in particular."
