THE SUN — GIANT Asian hornets that have begun to invade the coronavirus-stricken U.S. may cost the economy millions of dollars a year.

The insects, which can kill with a single sting, may have a devastating impact on the already dwindling honeybee population in the U.S.

Experts estimate the pests may cause America a staggering $29.3 million as they invade. …

 Asian hornets can give you a nasty sting

Asian hornets are similar to European hornets that live in the U.S., but they are not native to America.

They are large insects measuring almost 2 inches long, originally from Southeast Asia, that prey on small creatures – especially bees.

Just one sting is enough to kill someone allergic to their venom. …

The invasive hornets made it to the UK in 2016 – and in December 2019, were first spotted in the U.S. in Washington.

Experts are now warning that the species will begin to swarm in spring, as the hornet’s life cycle begins in April. 

The invasion is mainly controlled by destroying hornet nests and bait trapping.

But the authors say these methods are not enough to completely eradicate the species. …

Experts in Washington are calling for people to take action now, so the species can be controlled before it becomes out of hand. […]

  1. I don’t believe these invasive species are ever introduced “by accident” to the West, especially from the Third World. They are bio-warfare.
    And notice how this hornet attacks and kills our main pollinators, just like 5G radar kills all our pollinators, according to veteran Mark Steele.

      I really don’t think the criminal psycho elites realize just how much harm they are doing to the environment and nature while they claim to be “saving” it. The CPEs are completely divorced from reality. And not just bees (we still have some around here). Before the installation of Wireless Wi-Fi Towers out here, we had bats galore. Haven’t seen a bat since about 2005. And that “smart” meter attached to our telephone pole has already killed off a good part of the tree behind it…thank God it’s not attached to our house!

      • I think the criminal psycho elites know exactly what they’re doing. It’s almost as if they are trying to create a 5G spiderweb over the planet to prevent the Rapture.
