    Big ass wasps from Asia, gnarly looking, stings are horrifically painful, can rip through bee suits, they munch through beehives like Garfield eating lasagne, about a dozen people in Japan have been killed by them.

    Don't worry, we found a solution - more murder hornets!



    caution: video contains graphic scenes of hornet-on-hornet violence.

    Best I've got is the Wicker Man remake. Except that Murder Hornets are much bigger than these guys.

    I got bitten by a giant mystery bee in sisters, OR this past summer. Been stung by hornets wasps and yellow jackets over the years. Nothing hurt like this, and it gave me an almost immediate red line going up my leg like a blood infection. Doc said bee stings can do that. I ended up guessing it was a horse fly due to the size and darker coloration and the pain. Now we have definitive proof it was a murder hornet!

    The article is in the NY Times. Nasty little fuckers. So far it looks like they're still only in Washington and Southwestern BC.

    Demon Crown is a good read that mixes a lot of wasp factual information with some slightly fictional stretches into a good tale. They are already scary enough without having a giant murder version.

    How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all?

    Well, guys. Looks like we officially have our WTF event for May of 2020! Dammit. Asian Giant Hornets are the LAST thing we need to be dealing with right now. Haha. Or is calling them "Asian" not PC either.

    Mark my words. SJWs gonna be to the entomologists like "Come on people. That is NOT cool. Fat shaming them AND calling them Asian? I'm taking this to Twitter!"

    "It's hard to describe the pain - I've never felt anything anywhere near the level these things dish out - but if I had to, I'd say it was like having all your blood suddenly turn to hydrofluoric acid acid while being electrocuted. But after the 5 minutes of hell was over, it hardly hurt at all - now it's just slightly red and tender."

    Sounds like a murder hornet bite would be more pleasant.

    Just picked up some garden transplants from a neighbor, get them in the ground, water, and up comes a yellowjacket. Definitely not a paper wasp. Fucking great.
