Our unwanted guest….


Asian Giant Hornet…..compared to a hornet from my insect collection.

We welcome most guest, but not this one. I’m told it’s an Asian Giant Hornet aka Japanese Hornet according to the neighbors. Evidently they are somewhat common to this area and hurt like heck if they sting you. Luckily this one was found dead on the back porch. Hopefully I don’t meet any living specimens that like to sting. I haven’t unpacked my entomology books so I can’t verify it’s identity, but it’s one big hornet!!!!
