US-SCIENCE-ASIAN HORNETS

Washington State Department of Agriculture entomologist Chris Looney displays a dead Asian giant hornet, a sample sent from Japan and brought in for research, on May 7, 2020, in Blaine, Washington. - The new Asian hornets that have been found in Washington state may be murder on already stressed-out honeybees, but for humans its like a repeat of the sensationalized scare that turned Africanized killer honeybees of the 1970s: a real and nasty bug hyped into a horror movie motif that didnt quite fulfill its scary billing. Numerous bee and insect experts tell people to calm down about the so-called murder hornets, unless you are a beekeeper.
