Makes great dramatic news, but fizzles in reality. 2 colonies were found last year, one in Vancouver & one in Washington State. Both were destroyed. Beekeepers in the regions are on full alert to see signs of another colony of these hornets. I predict they have been/will be stopped in their tracks. Japanese bees have adapted to kill these hornets.

Texas, I know you like Africanized hybrids, have you ever seen anything like this?
It's like bee beserkers, LOL.

Yup... see the video. The guy is an idiot. Total moron. He may or may not know about beekeeping, but he has zero knowledge or experience dealing with defensive bees.

I've dealt with far worse. At 10:25, he shows his glove with plenty of bees. I've had 5 times that many bees on my face trying to sting through my hoodie, plenty of times (1000's of times). To the point where it can be hard to see. To me that is not a big deal. But old farts who've done this over and over change some of our equipment and understand the nature of the bees. And if your bees are not like this around my area, just wait 6 months and your colonies will change. I've spoken to two friends just this week who've caught multiple africanized small swarms trying to take over one of their hives.

BTW, my average hive is about as defensive as that video (average!). And I have no problem with them. But compared to Italians, it's like saying you have a pet cat vs saying you have a pet tiger!

Edit: look at 22:30. Look at how he zips his hoodie. Can't even do that right. He said he's worked aggressive hives in Africa? Sure. Whatever. Can you tell I'm not happy with this idiot?
