’Murder hornet’ lands in US for first time

Researchers have reported deadly hornets from Asia have been found for the first time in the US. The ’murder hornets’, as they are popularly known, can wipe out bee colonies within hours and have stingers long and powerful enough to puncture beekeeping suits. In Japan, the hornets kill up to 50 people a year. In Washington, beekeepers have already reported some devastation.

What's this? An Asian Hornet invasive species originating from East Asia that targets Honeybees has suddenly been spotted in the US, right after the leaked 5 eyes documents claiming that China has been deliberately utilizing the crisis to damage other nations? HMMMMMMMMMMM...

I work in pest control and we were killing this things in the summer of 2019. I feel like the media is just trying to find more ways to scare people as people start to pay less attention to the news. They'll probably bring up the EEE mosquito disease again once this covid thing is done.

Maybe we need to import the Japanese bees as well, since they know how to kill the murder hornets...
