Scientists In Washington State Have Trapped Their 1st Murder Hornet

>>> The Washington State Department of Agriculture announced Friday that it trapped its first Asian giant hornet on July 14, a step forward in the race to remove the invasive species before it damages North American bee populations beyond repair.

"This is encouraging because it means we know that the traps work," Sven Spichiger, the managing entomologist for WSDA, said in a press release. "But it also means we have work to do."

Yet, they don't seem to worry at all about the very similar giant European hornets that have infested the eastern US for decades, sting like a copperhead, and also wipe out honeybee hives right and left. They killed every one of my neighbor's bee colonies a few years ago. .
