According to the WSDA website, they will continue to capture giant wasps in Asia until the end of November.
The giant hornet is the largest wasp in the world and was first detected in the United States in 2019. WDSA works with local, state, and federal partners to prevent settlement in the United States.
According to officials, the wasp was decapitated and entered the “slaughter stage” of killing bees, hence the nickname “murder wasp”. They live natively in the region from northern India to East Asia. According to WSDA, they prey on bees and other insects, and some wasps can destroy their hives in just a few hours.
According to the USDA, the Hornet is considered invasive in the United States, first reported in the Vancouver Island region of Canada in August 2019, and subsequently detected in the northwestern tip of Washington State.
