    Their venom is more potent than other bees or hornets, but a single sting isn't going to kill you unless you're allergic and go into shock. They've been aware of the hornets coming this way for years. So far two have been found in Washington State and one in Canada. There's quite a lot of hype about the whole thing, much like some years ago when the Africanized "killer bees" made their way into the US. How many people actually die every year from the "killer bees" now that they've become established?
    Yes, the Asian hornets will attack and destroy honey beehives. So will yellow jackets, bears, random people, etc. The Asian honeybees will swarm and "cook" the hornets. American bees don't have that defensive instinct.
    Many years ago (actually several decades, I'm getting old, lol) I discovered that Armor All cleaner in the squirt bottle will instantly knock a wasp to the ground, and shortly afterward it's dead. Incredibly more effective than any brand of bug spray I've seen yet.

    Well, it's "hype" until that one person who gets stung goes into shock and dies. It's rare, but it happens, even with our own native wasps and bees. Even with honeybees.

    As for the Africanized bees -- they tend to swarm. The one expert said 12 stings, you're ok, 100 not so much. For some people, 12 is all it takes, or fewer.

    And here's another fact about wasps and hornets: If you're stung once, pheromones are released that signal more to attack you. That's why it's always advisable to leave the area if you're stung even once.

    A single wasp or hornet can sting multiple times, unlike honeybees, that die after they sting. And, if the stinger gets stuck in the skin, it continues to release venom.

    It isn't hype to someone who experiences a medical emergency or dies.

    This needs to be taken seriously and not just blown off by "experts" who think they know better.

    Still an hype then to me.

    These hornets arrived earlier in Europe. No one is killed by these "Murder hornets". Yes stings are painfull. The name alone tells media is spreading fear and panic again.

    Also mosquitoes spreading malaria and other tropical diseases have been found here. If one is at the wrong place at the wrong time that person is very unlucky. .
    A lot of poisenous and possible deadly snakes and spiders live in Australia.
    Still people live there as far as I know.

    Personally I think that is what life is about.

    That doesn't mean we should try to prevent these intruders. But in todays society, intensive agriculture, planes and people travelling over the world (at least before Covid-19) that won't be easy as not impossible. So trying to live with these "risks" probably is the best we can do.

    And trying not to let the media make us panick and fall asleep in fear.
    No Cory, No Glory !!

    It seems that's all they exist to do, anymore...more propaganda than actual real "news"
