Entomologists vacuum Asian giant hornets out of nest found in Whatcom County

The first Asian giant hornet nest found in the United States appears to have been successfully removed from a tree in Whatcom County, according to the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA).

Heavily protected crews with WSDA worked to eradicate the nest early Saturday morning. The nest was first discovered Thursday in a tree cavity, about eight feet up, on private property in Blaine. The property owner gave WSDA permission for the nest to be eradicated and for staff to remove the tree if necessary.

    Birds and parasites are natural enemies of the giant hornet in Asia. But they are not in America. You should get rid of it as soon as possible.

    This is all a tactic to keep you scared: the hornet has been in Weiser, Idaho since my childhood in the early 2000’s when I used to kill them by the pool during the hot evenings when they came in for a drink. You probably can still find them there during the summer.
