      @jonbification you’re talking nonsense buddy

    • @Manifested Logic You’re delusional, haven’t you noticed that they’re already doing it right before your eyes?

      @James Ray You have all of
      your rights. You are told
      to wear a mask in public, unless you have proof of a medical exemption. You are finding anything to say the government is controlling you, it’s just not true.

    • @Manifested Logic You probably won’t, but I’ll suggest it anyway. Search ‘The darkest Winter’ mini-doc. And watch it. Please.

    Where’s the king?

  6. Bit of a Freudian slip there ! Come again, was that Asian Giant Hornet or Asian Muder Hornet ? And is it anything like the Aggressive Africanized Bees.

  7. KILL ITTT!!
    We can’t let them kill the bees.

  8. When a species actively changes its instinctive nesting habits, moving its hive into a tree instead of underground, that should cause researchers to ask why? Maybe there’s an unknown North American insect, worm, ant, animal, or, plant that sees these hornets as a food source?

    • It’s possible, but while this species typically nests in the ground, it occasionally nests in other settings (at least according to Japanese publications, such as Matsuura & Sakagami 1973 and others). It’s probably too early to say that the nesting habits have changed–there may be several subterranean nests in the area than hadn’t been discovered. I’ve seen with other species that they sometimes can do the opposite of what is reported as the norm.

    • Or maybe the ground is too wet, or rocky for them here.

    • @Bob Jacobson Just being in North America is an unknown variable for this specie. The only X Factor for the murder hornet is fire ants. They don’t really have fire ants in Japan. So there wouldn’t be any research with the two species making contact. The first documentation of fire ants in Japan was in 2017. A subterranean Murder Hornets nest wouldn’t stand a chance against fire ants.

    • @Cantaloupe “Too wet” is the greater probability, but I doubt it would be sufficient to deter the hornets because the warmer months are the drier ones in that area.

  9. Between this, summer temps, ticks and tornados… time to move further north.

  10. Lol, anyone else check their phone after the one in the video chimed?

  11. This is chinese warfare

  12. Where’s billy the exterminator

  13. Murder hornets, co.vid, Civil war, etc etc…etc. And some how not surprised anymore. 🧐

  14. Call them gaint hornets murder hornet is click bait bs

  15. can you guys stop using buzz words and call them what they are actually called…. its bad enough when you do it with guns, let alone insects..

    how do you know they don’t just act in “Self defense”? they could be ‘Self Defense’ Hornets all along

    It seems that a great invasion has started from both sides, Western in British Columbia in Canada, and Eastern border in Washington, the USA. It seems there is no choice to stop it.

    And yet there’s still one thing more dangerous then these…..that’s the liberal government and their dictator leader!

  19. so how did it get here in the first place?
