A killer hornet species, called the Asian Giant Hornets, was spotted in the Pacific Northwest.

They were also spotted in Washington back in December 2019.

These hornets are also known as “murder Hornets.” Not only can they kill bees, but They can also kill humans. 

They are so strong and powerful that they can sting through a bee keeper’s suits.

Scientists are now taking the initiative to find, trap, and eradicate the hornets. In Japan, where they are very common, they kill about 50 people a year. 

Their scientific name is Vespa Mandarina and they’re originally from Southeast Asia and Japan.

These murder hornets can deliver venom equivalent to that of a snake. These insects can multiply to a dangerous amount. One that may corrupt our economy and/or ecology.  

The hornets are dangerous to bees than they are to us. But this could be a huge problem for us.

Farmers rely on bees to pollinate a huge number of crops. Without bees, we wouldn’t be able to grow the crops. Also, the bee population is already under threat. So there would be a lot of serious consequences if bees have to face the killer hornets as another predator.  

It is said that the people in charge will be able to eradicate the hornets before they cause major harm to the United States.

Since most of the sighting has been in Washington, citizens who live there are being educated on the situations.

This is so that they can report it whenever they come in contact with the Murder hornet.
