Murder Hornets appear in US – one of the deadliest insects in the world.

If you’re similar to me, you’ll be cautious of anything that can fly, create a lot of noise, and has the ability to sting.

I know bees and wasps are important, but I don’t want them near me when I’m having a picnic in the sun.

I’m not the only one feeling this way, which is why I’m quite startled by the alarming reports about the sudden increase of a harmful insect species. Keep reading if you want to learn more!

In recent years, there have been reports indicating that the United States might face an invasion by the Asian giant hornet, also known as the “murder hornet.”

The scary flying bug was initially seen in the US in 2019, and sightings have been ongoing, causing fear among those who are usually afraid of common yellow jackets.

Reports indicate that the most recent sighting took place in Washington in August 2021. The murder hornet possesses a sting that is equivalent to the combined stings of three to ten yellow jackets, making it a formidable creature that should not be underestimated.

The Asian giant hornet is known for its ability to destroy beehives, often killing thousands of bees by cutting off their heads.

Additionally, murder hornets, as mentioned before, have a strong sting that can be dangerous to humans. While rare, the sting of a murder hornet has caused fatalities in the past.

According to reports, the WSDA is implementing safety measures to address the risk of this new disease.

After the incident in Washington in 2019, scientists who study insects had intended to attach small markers to the captured wasps. This would help them locate the nests of these wasps and take necessary steps to eliminate them, thus stopping their further spread.
