Murder Hornets are a Thing?

As if we don’t have enough on our plates! Yes, Murder Hornets have made their way to the United States. That’s the bad news. The good news? It seems we have made this discovery relatively early. Which will hopefully give us a chance to wipe them out.

I have scoured the internet trying to find more information on this volatile insect. I finally found an article which provides facts on the Murder Hornet. It seems the highest amount of danger would be to our already decimated bee population. Traps are being set for the hornets to protect beehives.

The Department of Agriculture encourages anyone spotting a Murder Hornet to first get to safety and contact them immediately.

Meanwhile on the home front I am being invaded by bumble bees. I’m trying to find a way to live with them and keep Clifford safe. They look like something to play with! I think I’m going to create some homemade deterrents for sitting areas and my yard to keep the pup safe. Let the bees have area near fence line bordering my neighbors shed. Which I’m sure is where their hive is. I can’t kill them. So homemade deterrent it is!

      1. The video has several doctors, one of which just came off a bag order. She has a lot to say about the virus, and so many other things. According to many doctors who understand microbiology, we’re doing everything backwards. And, so many people are paid off. 🙁

      1. They’re about 2 inches long, give or take a quarter inch. Their stingers are long enough to be able to go through beekeeper suits also. Nasty little things.

        A few of them can completely wipe out a beehive in an hour or so also. They’re a major threat to agriculture because of that.

        It’s too early to tell if this will be another Killer Bees or Fire Ant doomsday scenario… The media had a field day with those, didn’t they? Either way, I’d like to see the blaster things eradicated from this continent while we can.
