Exclamation Giant Hornets land in North America


Some bug experts are calling this a hype and people shouldn't be concerned about these giant hornets spreading across America. Others are worried of the potential invasion and the further decline of honeybees.

On a more positive note there's a video showing a praying mantis eating a murder hornet.

Should we be concerned?

The university said it is not known how or where the hornets arrived in North America. They likely arrived on a ship docking at one of Washington’s ports. Transporting the insects on purpose would violate U.S. law.

The hornet was first seen in the U.S. last December when state officials confirmed two reports near Blaine, Washington. Two likely, but unconfirmed, reports also came from Custer, Washington, south of Blaine.
