50 people are killed yearly in Japan

Rarely seen as an immediate threat, the Asian Hornet or “Murder Hornet” may be getting a foothold outside Asia lately.

The sight of a murder hornet really puts things in perspective. In the west we are used to the small and rather peaceful common hornet. The Asian variant is the size of a matchbox.

The murder hornet could kill you with just one sting if you are unlucky, and judging by stories told by its victims, being stung by one is an extremely unpleasant experience.

Another threat they pose is to our honeybees…
