Don't know how this might work or how safe, but what about taking a shopvac wet/dry and adding a long tube out of plastic hose, get all sizes and length at a farm store attach it to the larger vacuum hose. You might be able to suck up the problem, might also try from fuel line end.

Have you replaced you fuel cap, just a wild thought but, I'm wondering if you might be creating a vacuum problem as no air is getting back to the tank.

all he needs to do to confirm this is open the cap when its starved. you will hear it suck air and the fuel flow will resume. its pretty loud and sometimes the tank can be sucked in as well.

I started with the simplest fix (clogged fuel cap) first, wish it was that easy!

How would bee's get pass the tank filter, let alone the fuel cap, assuming both were installed. That a lot of insects.
At least one looks like a small hornet

In reply number seven, my hero, had the exact same thing happen and I used his remedy to resolve my issues. My best postulation would be the filter is shoved into the tank, true. Then the bees and hornets are attracted to the diesel in the diesel can spout, dying and then poured into tank.

Not sure how you fuel your tractor but I use this type funnel which doesn't cause any issues with the tank filter, it doesn't go down very far and sits on top of tank opening and then I rest a 5 gallon container on the FEL arm.There like $2.00 at Fleet Farm.
