‘Murder Hornets’ Have arrived in the US: Wipes out Bee Hives in Hours, Endangers US Crops, Can Kill Humans with just Multiple Stings.....
A new threat reaches the United States: A massive hornet with mandibles that rip bees to shreds and a stinger so potent that one unfortunate victim likened it to "having red-hot thumbtacks being driven into my flesh."

Sightings of the Asian giant hornet have prompted fears that the vicious insect could establish itself in the United States and devastate bee populations.

WIPES OUT HONEYBEE HIVES IN MATTER OF HOURS

With queens that can grow to two inches long, Asian giant hornets can use mandibles shaped like spiked shark fins to wipe out a honeybee hive in a matter of hours,

decapitating the bees and flying away with the thoraxes to feed their young. For larger targets, the hornet’s potent venom and stinger — long enough to puncture a beekeeping suit — make for an excruciating combination that victims have likened to hot metal driving into their skin.

In Japan, the hornets kill up to 50 people a year. Now, for the first time, they have arrived in the United States.

Very bad for bee populations, no bees,
no cross-pollination, ....less Food...


Why should anyone care? Well, they matter a lot more than most people would think. With summer upon us, it’s exciting to see the reemergence of some of our favorite produce, including stone fruit, peppers, sweet, juicy melons, and succulent strawberries. But what if the arrival of these crops each summer were to come to an end?

Honeybees, among other pollinators such as bats, birds, butterflies, and bumblebees, are responsible in one way or another for the pollination of approximately 100 crops, according to Dr. Reese Halter, Ph.D., author of The Incomparable Honeybee and distinguished conservation biologist. And they’re not just the fruits of summer; imagine a Thanksgiving, for example, without sweet potatoes or pumpkin pie.

However, the implications of the disappearance of honeybees are not just gastronomic;
they are also economic in scope, and in that respect, the scale is significant. According to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC),

more than $15 billion worth of crops are pollinated by bees each year just in the United States alone. Put another way, one of every three bites of food Americans consume comes from a plant visited by bees or other pollinators.


10 Crops would disappaer

"In rural China, the bees have left the building...er...the farm and it’s worse than a zombie apocalypse...it’s a Beepocalypse.

In the Sichuan province, Hanyuan county is the self-proclaimed “world’s pear capital.” To keep up with demand, farmers started using more pesticides, leading to a drastic reduction of the bee population."

The 2-inch ‘murder hornet’, with an appetite for honey bees and potentially deadly to humans, has been found in the US.

That guy is gonna hunt Murder Hornets with a pistol loaded with rat shot because "Ya can't carry a blow torch around with you everywhere."

Does wasp/hornet spray not work on the Murder Hornets for some reason? You could carry that around with you as easily as a pistol, at least, if you were that anxious about it.

In fact, assuming it does work, we need to get this problem rounded up quickly before it gets out of control. I propose everyone get an industrial size can of Raid and use this quarantine time productively and go on a nationwide Murder Hornet genocide spree. We could all use some stress relief, anyway. Since we can't hunt viruses, let's all take it out on the Murder Hornets. State governments could put a bounty on them like they do with nutria in Louisiana or pythons in Florida if people need encouragement.
