Join BV in Boycotting the Giant Hornet

 

The author of BV very rarely finds cause to protest the very existence of a member of the animal kingdom, but in the case of the Japanese Giant Hornet (vespa mandarinia japonica), she will make an exception. This bug  is very simply cheating at scrabble. Colloquially known as the “yak killer” (!! one shudders to think), this little thumb-sized monster’s 1/4 inch long stinger  is equipped not only with flesh-eating/ neurotoxic  venom, but also with pheremones proven irresistable to other hornets. Which  then join in the feast. The gist? You do not, dear readers, want to get stung by a giant hornet. Ever. Ever.
