“Asian giant hornets” have made there way into the US for the first time. These hornets are an invasive and potentially deadly species, scientists say.
Researchers nicknamed it the “murder hornet”. Its venomous sting can kill a human if they are stung several times, and they are strong enough to puncture a beekeeper’s suit.
The hornets are more than two inches long and have reportedly been attacking bee hives in Washington state.
It is still not known how they made it to the US.
