Can you believe this stuff, more invasions. Now, we have to deal with these hornets out west. Just great - I am going to Mars or Antarctica.




budd -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/5/2020 2:47:05 AM)

It's funny you mention it, i read an article about that yesterday and went to look at some videos. Those things are huge, this guy has got some brass ones.

Murder logs are worse.




Grognerd_INC -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/5/2020 10:02:08 AM)

It's a conspiracy! First beetles that killed every ash tree in North America, now this.
Do these hornets fly across the pacific, I doubt it. There being brought into North America.




demyansk -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/5/2020 11:15:23 AM)

Oh yeah they came in some luggage just like some of the Asian fish that travel on a ship and end up in our lakes, rivers and also brought by people. They dump them in the lake and forget it. Kill everything




Kuokkanen -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/5/2020 6:34:13 PM)

I remember reading about some British guy who enjoyed hunting rabbits. So he took bunch of them along to Australia and released them to the wild for hunting. It... gone horribly right




sPzAbt653 -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/5/2020 6:49:52 PM)

I don't understand why they say they are just being seen and only in the NW. We've had them on the East Coast in Maryland for 20 some years. They are very territorial and aggressive, and aren't afraid of humans. They tend to love burrowing in the cracks of concrete sidewalks and curbs. You can tell where they are by the piles of dirt near such cracks. They always have one or two 'sentinels' paroling the area and will buzz you when you get too close. I never got stung by one, but they are so big it is difficult to miss them. I once got fed up with being buzzed and used a can of that 20 foot wasp spray to defend myself. As I sprayed it at the Giant Asian Wasp it drank the stuff, spit some out, laughed at me, and flew on [:)]

I'll see if I can find a link to a show I saw about them once.

Found part of it pretty quick:

and that is the show that I saw, from 2011. Maybe the news agency's have not enough to make stuff up about so they grabbed this story and are also overblowing it ?




budd -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/5/2020 7:43:25 PM)

Cool video, i didn't know but people are definitely saying they been here awhile in quite a few states. Looks like those Japanese honey bees got it figured out, someone should of told these bees.

Pretty cool video, you can see one bee pull a dead or injured buddy bee back and some riding on the Hornets back.

I think the ones you saw were European Hornets. Had some make a home behind the brick on my house (Virginia). Those guys are big (1.5-2 inches). I did not find them too aggressive, annoying yes, but not too bad.

I think those are different hornets..."murder hornets" are bigger and have more distinctive orange and black stripes on their abdomens.

I just hope that the sodomy rabbits never get a foothold here.

Get enough of them and they dress up just like shrimp, I'm not sure what they'd taste like...

Pretty good from what I've read.
"Yum Yum MurderHornet…"




Pvt_Grunt -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/10/2020 10:43:48 AM)

I heard from my Brother's friends' cousin on Facebook that they're spread by 5G phone towers!




sPzAbt653 -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/22/2020 3:30:53 AM)

You guys are correct, of course, but I still don't like the Euro Hornets much [:'(]

Murder hornets likely years away from reaching Maryland, expert says

https://www.wbaltv.com/article/murder-hornets-far-from-reaching-maryland-expert-says/32417951

The European hornet is the largest hornet in Maryland right now. Not to be confused with the Asian giant hornet.




sPzAbt653 -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/22/2020 3:37:09 AM)

So did the our friends the Chinese figure out how to get these dangerous hornets into the US and Canada? Before you scoff and chastise me, remember this:


Fu-Go balloon bomb

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fu-Go_balloon_bomb

A Fu-Go, or fire balloon, was a weapon launched by Japan during World War II. A hydrogen balloon, it was designed as a cheap weapon intended to make use of the jet stream over the Pacific Ocean and drop bombs on America.




sPzAbt653 -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/22/2020 3:42:03 AM)

And to go a step further, there was this possible nightmare:


Operation Cherry Blossoms at Night

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Cherry_Blossoms_at_Night

... was a 1945 Japanese military plan to wage biological warfare upon civilian population centers in Southern California with plague-infected fleas.

Late to the party.

Murder Hornets was my favorite '80 band. Yellow and brown spandex. Ah, the good old days.

"If they do get to Maryland and you see a murder hornet, Raupp said if you see just one, smash it and kill it."

I found this comment from an entomology professor interesting. I've always heard that crushing a hornet/wasp will release pheromones that will result in worse attacks from the hive/nest.

Ask the Japanese. Apparently they eat the nasty buggers and use the venom in a liquor. [&:]

Nice to read that good old fashioned racism is still going on.

I do not understand how that is racist. To me, it is more of a necessity to use all food types available. I mean, look at the Swedes who will eat rotting herring.




AndySfromVA -> RE: Murder Hornets (5/24/2020 1:12:34 AM)

The kind of junk food available at state fairs and festivals is not exactly high class eating.
