A terrifying new plague has reportedly now been identified in the US, and it has nothing to do with the Coronavirus.
The giant Asian ‘murder hornet’ has now reportedly been spotted in the United States. The massive hornets are almost two inches long are extremely aggressive, and have a venomous sting that can sometimes be lethal to humans. As The New York Post reports:
The deadly meat-eating Asian giant hornet, which has been known to kill up to 50 people a year in Japan, recently surfaced for the first time in the USin Washington state — and New York City beekeepers say there is no way it won’t make its way here, too.
“I told the NYPD back in 2012 … ‘Your problem is not the bees. This [the murder hornet] is your problem,’” recalled retired Police Department beekeeper Anthony “Tony Bees” Planakis.
“I showed them a picture of it, and they go, ‘What the hell is that?’ ” Planakis said. “I go, ‘That is an Asian hornet. My [beekeeper’s] suit is useless against that thing.’ ”
Asked if the monstrous insects are dangerous to humans, Planakis added, “Absolutely. Oh, my God.”
