    But not scarier than other things that are happening in the world atm.
    I think we should all only post good news on the forum in 2021.

    I agree - at least until we have vanquished Covid.

    Breaking News!!! 2nd ‘murder hornet’ nest near border destroyed, Washington state officials say - BC | Globalnews.ca

    A third nest has been also located and plans are underway to eradicate it as well. 'Murder Hornet' aka 'Asian Giant Hornet' for those less given to sensationalism.

    While they are not considered particularly dangerous to humans, the Invasive Species Council of B.C. warns they are capable of delivering painful stings and are a threat to people allergic to bees and wasps.

    So far it seems like all the nests have been on the US side of the border - not that the hornets would respect borders.

    Anyone who spots one of the hornets in B.C. is urged to report it to the Invasive Species Council at 1-888-933-3722 or on their website.

    Well at least the common name has changed, to northern giant hornet.
