First ever ’murder hornet’ nest in the US found in Washington

Entomologists from the Washington State Department of Agriculture on Thursday found an Asian giant hornet nest on a property in Blaine, Washington. This makes it the first one ever found in the U.S. Officials reported that they are planning to eradicate it on October 24. Scientists have been carefully tracking every sighting of the hornet in a bid to prevent it from establishing itself in the US.

People were in a panic about them like 6 months ago... And we're only finding the first nest now?

I'm tired of seeing these "murder hornet" scares... The United States has more than a few large hornet species which the majority of them are not agressive unless you disturb there nest.

For the record, people do not need to be afraid of these insects. Unless you are allergic, their sting is not lethal. Also they are not as aggressive as more common species of hornets and wasps found here in the US.

I promise you rather than just destroying it they will capture some alive and in 20 years we will hear about chemically altered hornets that are invading, kinda like Killer Bees

How is this the first nest found in the US when I had 2 of these make it into my house in back to back years, the most recent being 3 years ago... in Tennessee. On top of that, I have heard of these things in the US for no less than 6 or 7 years now.

First nest FOUND. Can we please take this seriously before we file these as a newly indigenous species?
