‘Murder hornets’ attacking beehives in U.S.

But it in 2020, anything is possible.

The WSDA says that one challenge in eradicating Asian giant hornets is a lack of traps for this type of insect, which makes it hard to know where they are.

None of the non-native murder hornets have been found anywhere east of Washington state, more than 1,800 miles from westernmost Pennsylvania.

Officially known as the Asian giant hornet, the insects were spotted in the USA for the first time in Washington state last December, but are beginning to emerge more frequently as the weather warms up. It is around this time that the Murder Hornets begin to come out of their winter hibernation.

Should humans be anxious? "They also attack other insects but are not known to destroy entire populations of those insects".

The hornet was first spotted in Washington in December, and they've become active with the springtime. "Our goal is to stop any further spread if they have, by chance, established nests in Canada or Washington". While Japanese honey bees have defenses against this predation, including surrounding a hornet and vibrating their bodies to produce heat that kills the invader, honey bee species in the U.S. have no effective way to fend them off. As reported by Wired, if the hornets don't see you as a threat, they'll leave you alone - like most animals.

If a nest is disturbed, the hornets will attack with painful stings, which can be hazardous to your health.

For the first time, Asian giant hornets have been spotted in the United States, specifically in Washington state, scientists say.

In addition to the sightings in northwest Washington, Asian giant hornets have been found across the border in southwest British Columbia, including a colony that was eradicated on Vancouver Island last September.

It was this initial report as well as public reports of three additional hornets in September that led to authorities being able to locate the nest in the ground in the Robin's Park area on September 18, 2019.

"It's a shockingly large hornet", added Todd Murray, a specialist in invasive species at the university.

It's also important to note that humans face an indirect risk, as the hornets are bee killers.

This video just resurfaced this week and is spreading in light of the news that the deadly version of these insects from across the world has touched down in our own backyard here in North America in the past few months. "Asian Giant Hornets can significantly impact honey production where they occur naturally or where similar species have been introduced in Europe".

This isn't the first time an invasive insect with a menacing name has spooked Americans.
