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

Posted by in category: futurism

See ya later 👋! The nest was the first discovered in the U.S.

Crews with the WSDA Pest Program vacuumed the hornets from the tree cavity into large canisters Saturday. The nest was about the size of a basketball and contained an estimated 100 to 200 hornets.

The specimens will be used for research purposes, said Sven Spichiger, an entomologist with WSDA, during a press conference Friday afternoon.
