A Murder Hornet Nest Has Been Spotted At The BC Border

You know what no one needed this year? A nest of murder hornets near the B.C. border in Washington State.

On Thursday, August 12, the Washington State Department of Agriculture announced that they had discovered their first live sighting of an Asian giant hornet, aka a murder hornet. Soon after, on August 19, they found the nest and the footage will give you the creeps.

According to the release, the Asian giant hornet is the largest hornet in the world, and the Invasive Species Council of BC states that they can range in size from 2.5 to 5 centimetres.

Just a few of these not-so-little critters can demolish a honey bee hive in a few hours.

"If they establish in BC, they may pose a serious threat to our beekeeping and commercial pollination industries, which in turn will have serious consequences for BC agriculture," said the Invasive Species Council of BC.
