Welcome back to my blog about balloons, rocket ships, airplanes, space travel, Star Wars, sci-fi, and everything about flying! These Murder Hornets sound like science fiction but unfortunately are all too real! And likely headed to a place near you!
The Asian Giant Hornet, not-so-affectionately dubbed the Murder Hornet, is a really big hornet (in fact, the world’s largest!) that does not get along well with honeybees. Or beetles. Or really anything that it can eat. And these 2-3 inch hornets are moving around the world — though no one really knows how or why.
Though not as fast as dragonflies, these bad boys of the bug world aren’t slowpokes — they can fly as fast as 25 miles per hour.
Luckily though, these hornets don’t seem to partially bother people (as long as you aren’t wearing a honeybee costume). And if you are stung, if you aren’t allergic to stings, you will probably be okay. Asian Giant Hornets are only really murderous when it comes to finding their next meal.
Until next time,
