The first Asian giant hornet’s nest in the US has been examined in Washington after the tree it was discovered in was chopped down and a section of it opened up.
The Washington State Department of Agriculture said in a tweet that it “may be some time” before the final number of insects is known.
The nest was found in Blaine, Washington on October 22 after a number of hornets were trapped and tagged with tracing devices. The nest was then eradicated “by vacuuming the hornets out of the nest,” the department said. Credit: WA State Dept. of Agriculture via Storyful
