Giant Killer Hornet may invade the U.S.A.!

The Japanese Giant Hornet

is one of the most dangerous

insects in the world,

reports Terrence Aym,

for Russian website

PRAVDA.RU

October 26th, 2010.


Two stings is enough to kill

most people and shoots

flesh-melting acid at the face

of its victims –

usually at the eyes.


This five-eyes monster is endemic

in the rural areas of Japan.

In his article

“Japanese Giant Hornets:

World’s most dangerous insect?

US based researcher

Terrence Aym claims that the

Japanese giant hornet,

or Vespa mandarinia japonica,

a subspecies of the Asian

giant hornet,

is

“one of the most aggressive

insects in the world”,

which “can shoot flesh-melting

acid at you” and

“it aims for the eyes”,

while “only a couple of stings

is enough to kill most people”.


The Japanese Giant Hornet,

according to the researcher,

has a wingspan of over 6

centimetres and is over 4

centimetres long.


Three eyes on the top of

its head sit between two large

compound eyes.


The insect has a dark brown thorax,

a yellow head and a brown and

yellow striped abdomen.


The Japanese call it

“Suzumebachi”, or

Giant Sparrow Bee.



What comes next in the

article is terrifying.

“Imagine that this bug

is a relentless killer,

single-minded in destroying

whatever enemy might

threaten it –

including you,

if it perceives you as a threat”.


“However,

“you don’t have to imagine it.

It’s real”.


The advice the author gives,

is “run”

and “seek the nearest

shelter as fast as you can”,

indicating that there are

stories of just 30 hornets

destroying hives of 30,000

bees – one thousand bees each.


Not that this would

do you much good –

the hornet can fly at 25 mph!


When it attacks, it releases

a chemical (an airborne

pheromone) which sends a

message back to base,

rallying the hornet’s nest.


“Only a few stings will result

in almost certain death,”

according to the article.



This horrific killer has a

veritable arsenal of weapons.


The highly venomous

sting is only one.


The other is a stream of

flesh-melting acid which it

squirts into the eyes of the victims.


Blinded,

they can do nothing to defend

themselves against the enraged

swarm.


This insect is responsible for

dozens of deaths every

year in Japan, along with

hundreds of hospitalised cases.


The Japanese are now marketing

an energizing drink called Vaam,

which apparently contains a

synthetic formula of the

Japanese Giant Hornet’s

strength and stamina.


And now for the bad news:

people are starting to keep

these monsters as pets in

the USA.


Just imagine if a pregnant

Queen escapes and establishes

a colony, making the Japanese

Giant Hornet endemic in the

United States of America.


“If that happened,”

claims Terrence Aym,

“it would be the insect

version of Pearl Harbor”.

  1. I’ve seen one in a Kyoto shrine this summer,
    never seen so many people run for their lives.

  2. It should be illegal to have them in the U.S. Why is it not? How awful!

  3. have we not learned with the lion fish that is invading our ocean and the Asian carp that is taking over the great lakes, because someone thought what a cool pet. These things should not be allowed over here to kill us and our bees/
