First ‘Murder Hornet’ Nest Found In Washington State

As if it couldn’t, 2020 officially just got a bit scarier as the first “murder hornet” nest has been found in the US.

Washington State officials made the discovery in Blaine while chasing the giant insects around the border with Canada.

The¬†department of agriculture wanted to get to the hornets before they entered the “slaughter phase” where they attack nearby honeybee colonies.

Entomologists fear the hornets could make their way as far south as California, or even the east coast, if they were to find their way into a train or plane.
