yeah so these giant asian hornets are now in North America.

Here's the CNN version https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/03/us/wa...ets/index.html

Of course it's US-centric, so it points out that these things have been sighted in Washington state, while failing to mention that they've also been sighted in BC.

I have enough difficulty just knowing that I'm on the same planet as these abominations. Now on the same continent. Ugh.

I read an article yesterday about how Japanese honeybees band together to kill murder wasps. I hope North American honeybees figure it out before it's too late.

Quote:
In Asia, however, the bees have learned to fight back. Researchers have observed Japanese honeybees specifically (as opposed to their European counterparts) forming "hot defensive bee balls" in order to collaboratively cook hornets at a temperature that the bees can withstand but the hornets cannot. By surrounding the hornets and vibrating their flight muscles, the honeybees produce heat up to 47 degrees Celsius (116 degrees Fahrenheit).
There's a NatGeo video of bees doing the macabre deed in the article. I can't bring myself to watch it.

Watch it, it's neat.

But our honeybees haven't spent millennia with these Hornets. They aren't going to learn this behaviour in a hurry.

Well, it's time we buy some warrior bees from Japan.


Or start training our own.


Starlings eat wasps.

In my worst case climate change model, the western coast of British Columbia will be a good place to be.

I still haven't identified the wasp I saw... oh, 35 years ago. Indelibly etched in my memory, it was crawling up a poplar sapling towards a katydid. If you took a paper wasp, sized it up by 400%, flattened it a bit in the abdomen, this is what you'd get.

It was not
A tarantula hawk
A cicada killer
A european hornet
A Japanese murder hornet

Suggestions welcome.

I'm no entimologist, but have you drawed it yet? Especially with the katydid and poplar, it could help you clarify details maybe.

Haven't drawn it but have searched many insect id sites.

On the murder hornet front, there's a video available showing a praying mantis eating one face first.

Is that the hornet's stinger sticking out of the mantis's mouth at the very end?

No need. They are making easterners hungry, so there will be no measures needed.

They'll be served in a salad with fiddleheads, cod cheeks, lobster tamale and other abominations that should NEVER have looked appetizing.

Easterners are sweethearts. When well-fed.

Would you send me rappie pie blocks? D'eons hopefully? I'll gladly pay if you are near a suitable shipping location (needs to go quick so it doesn't unfreeze too much)

Oh, if you won't, will you eat one for me? Maybe even post a photo/review (especially if you haven't tried D'eon's offering before)

I remember when the killer africanized killer bees were the big scare. They had news reports, with maps of the 'scientific' models showing how they would spread. They even had scientists explain how the food production would be ruined, and little children would die by the truck load from these SUPER BEES.


Yea, how many scare stories that don't come true do you need to see before you recognize its all high level manipulation of the population through mass media advertising.


The freaks feed on the emotional distress of others.

Same as every soap-opera story from the 70's and on

Same as the Q-posts about arrests of the bad guys

And when 'he will change'.

ANYtime now...it's IMMINENT!
