Farmers got conned, now their land is worth nothing and it won't grow anything unless they buy lootbox nitrogen.

They might want to find one that targets wasps, cause those Japanese hornets are rediculously dangerous.

Killer hornets making a beeline for the UK: Fears two-inch long insects that have left six dead in France could travel to Britain .

The two-inch-long Asian hornets pose a terrible danger to our honeybees.

It has colonised huge swathes of the country and, with a few hornets capable of destroying 30,000 bees in just a couple of hours, honey production has plummeted.

i had hornets for a few years nesting in my cabin. but not orange ones like on that page. i didnt mess with them and had no problems, but i am happy they are gone. now i have bees living in a hollow tree and they already stung me. btw, i heard dragonflies will kill hornets, they are up to four-five inch in size around here. birds will prolly also do them in. i say just let nature sort it out.

They're 1.8 inches long. The stinger is 1/4". The stinger injects deeper than the thickness of your skin. If you get stung by one of these then your heading to a clinic at a minimum. Here are some photos of people who have been stung.
