Coronavirus has already taken the so much from our lives for a few months now and with this virus being on loose, there is supposedly another danger which has wings.
An insect named Vespa mandarinia or nicknamed as Murder Hornets which killed nearly 50 people in Japan has now come to the US.
The state’s Department of Agriculture has spotted this murderous insect in Washington state.
The insect was like something with huge and yellow-orange face according to Susan Cobey, a bee breeder at WSU’s Department of Entomology.
It was also confirmed that the insect is dangerous if they are provoked and it has the ability to kill people with its stings. 41 people were killed by that insect and it injured 1,600 in Shaanxi province in 2013.
With already so much on our hands this year starting from Australian bush fires to coronavirus, this insect is now becoming a new danger that could cost people’s lives.
The hornets are so huge that it could kill a human with a couple of stings. Due to this, it is named ‘Murder Hornets”.
People who live in the Washington state and anywhere near that place are said to be very cautious about these insects.
People are said to be aware of these insects as it stings is more painful than any other insect’s sting and it has neurotoxins that some people may be allergic.
However the officials of Washington State are tracking them and setting traps which will hopefully eradicate their presence in the U.S, people should be very careful.
What to do if you spot one?
The state’s Department of Agriculture has said people to warn them or contact them if they see any hornets or the evidence of their presence near them.
People are advised not to take things on their own hands and should do as told by the officials.
