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!
