Scientists Capture Murder Hornets

Description:

Since no one needs to worry about murder hornets, too, scientists in Washington state have destroyed a nest containing the giant, scary-looking insects. The bugs made their way to the United States late last year. Over the summer, they became a hot topic when they were found in Washington state. Now, officials there say a nest has been extinguished. Inside Edition Digital's Stephanie Officer has the details.


Washington state Department of Agriculture workers destroyed the first nest of so-called murder hornets discovered in the US, the agency said Monday. 98 Asian giant hornets were removed from the nest in Whatcom County, 13 of them still alive. (Oct. 26)
