Moultrie Residents Shouldn't Worry About Murder Hornets

Asian giant hornets, commonly named the "murder hornet", is the largest known species of hornet in the world. It is native to Asian countries like South Korea and Japan but have recently been showing up in the US. They are extremely aggressive pests that hunt other large insects. They are mostly known for feeding on honey bees. A honey bee colony can be completely eradicated by the Asian giant hornet within a couple of hours. They are able to sting multiple times and contain dangerous neurotoxins in their stinger. They can also puncture beekeeping suits.

In December 2019, the first official asian giant hornet sighting in the US was recorded in Washington state. Washington state officials are working hard to prevent any further migration or population growth of the invasive species. They look similar to bald-faced hornets or European hornets so people could be lead to think that they are a relatively common species of wasp when they see them. This is a huge mistake as they are much more dangerous and aggressive than these other species of stining insects.

This species of hornet isn't native to the US so they won't likely spread outside of Washington state. But, there is the risk that they can. People should be cautious when they see a wasp or hornet just in case. This invasive species could negatively impact local environments and public health if they continue to spread.

However, common stinging insects are a much larger risk. Wasps and yellowjackets send over 500,000 people to the emergency room every year. Bald-faced hornets are one species to be on the look for because they don't need to be threatened to be aggressive. They will naturally sting anything that comes near them or their nest so it is best to hire a professional to remove the pests.
