Pandemic not bad enough for you? Northward-creeping Fire ants too wimpy? Here's your new terror: Washington State has confirmed sightings of Asian Giant Hornets.

Here's the Wikipedia entry on the "Murder Wasp".

Here's The Oatmeal's description of how Japanese Honeybees kill Giant Hornets.

National Geographic has video of the damned things. Content warning: dismantling of honeybees and a praying mantis.

The two gentlemen lived in China for over a decade each and put together a couple of documentaries (Conquering Southern China and Conquering Northern China, available on Amazon I believe) of them traveling around those areas. Gorgeous scenery, cool people, and food both interesting and bizarre.
