About Those "Murder Hornets"

You, gentle reader, have heard about the "Murder Hornets". They are very large hornets that carry a huge amount of venom and will often swarm like killer bees or yellow-jackets if provoked. Like other examples of new and exciting biodiversity we've been blessed with this year, these plucky insects hail mainly from the Middle Kingdom.  Note that in addition to being dangerous to people, they feed upon, amongst other things, European Honey Bees. 

Now one of the Brickmuppet's Crack Team of Science-Babes takes a moment from her hornet hunting to re-assure us that while these bugs are dangerous they're not the end of the world, as well as to bring us  this video pointing out that North America is not without some indigenous defense.
