Hornets

From overthrowing an empire to battling with bees, here are some of our most memorable hornet moments.

What was the reason for the hornets invading the airplane cabin in China?

When we think about insects that are dangerous to humans, hornets are often at the top of the list. These flying insects belong to the family Vespidae and are known for their painful stings, aggressive behavior, and ability to attack in swarms.

Here are the top five moments of ferocious hornet attacks:

1. Asian giant hornet invasion in Washington state

In 2019, the Asian giant hornet (aka “murder hornet”) made headlines when it was discovered in Washington state. These hornets can be up to two inches long and their sting can be fatal to humans. The Washington State Department of Agriculture worked quickly to eradicate the hornets before they could establish themselves in the area.

2. Hornets attack soccer team in Vietnam

In 2019, a soccer game in Vietnam was interrupted when a swarm of hornets attacked the players on the field. The players and referees were forced to run for cover as the hornets continued to attack.

3. Hornet nest inside a car

In a video that went viral in 2020, a man in Texas discovered a massive hornet nest inside his car door. The man had been getting stung by hornets every time he got into his car and didn’t know where the stings were coming from until he found the nest.

4. Hornets invade airplane cabin

In 2018, a plane in China was delayed when a nest of hornets was found inside the cabin. Passengers and crew members were forced to evacuate the plane while the hornets were removed.

5. Hornets attack ferris wheel

In 2019, visitors to a fair in Japan were trapped on a ferris wheel for over an hour when a swarm of hornets attacked. The hornets were attracted to the lights on the ride and began stinging the passengers.

Hornets can be a serious threat to humans, especially when they feel threatened or their nest is disturbed. It’s important to be cautious around these insects and seek medical attention if stung.
