May an Insect Kill Human with Their Stings? - Science and Technology 2

A bee feeds nectar and pollen of a flower

Murder insects were spotted first time in Washington state, USA in May 2020. The insect is called as “Asian giant hornets” with scientific name, Vespa mandarinia.

The insect, actually native to several regions such as:

- East Asia

- South Asia

- Southeast Asia

- the Russian Far East

The Asian giant hornets have no natural enemies in the nature, but they may affect bee population, because:

- they attack honey bee hives

- hornets kill adult bees

- they are devouring larvae and pupae

One individual hornet may kill about 40 bees in a minute, causes devastating of bees colony.

May an Insect, Asian giant hornets Kill Human with Stings?

Yes

The hornets killed 50 people in Japan per year with their stings. Approximately, 1 per million people died in the world due to stinging of this insect.

It is because their stings contain poison called neurotoxin. Painful and severe to human.

The sting is quite longer compared to other insects, about 6 mm (0.25 inches). Single sting may contain 28 times more poison than honey bees sting.

Have you ever seen murder insects in nature? Do you know any dangerous insects?

  3. I did not meet any insects that can be deadly to humans, but I know that they are there in other Asian countries, but there are many ticks here, although a tick bite is not fatal, but if they carry a disease, this can be deadly if you arrive too late to a docter.

  7. I have heard about this murderous insect, but I hope that in Poland we have a climate that will not allow it to settle in. Our European hornets are enough for us ... Brrr ...

  8. Tanza, Invasive species are everywhere in the USA...but these hornets are among the most significant threats we face...mainly because of the danger to other bees, pollination and our crops. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  14. This was so interesting to read. I'm glad in Spain there are non of these insects, otherwise I'd freak out. I guess you just need to learn how to live with them. I just realised I was not a follower of your blog so I started following you. I hope to see you back on my blog. Take care and great post

  15. Ah, the old murder bees! Just another horror of the dumpster fire that was 2020. I particularly enjoyed the "wild flower, just for illustration," both the image and the caption, LOL.
