Halloween Chaos Countdown: Japanese Hornet Apocalypse

Giant Japanese hornets may cause the apocalypse. 30 hornets can massacre 30,000 bees! And as you may know, we need bees in order to stay alive since they help pollinate 1/3 of the crops that we eat.

Due to global warming, the hornets are going on a bee killing spree and are now attacking humans. They have killed 41 people in China and injured 1,600 in the last few weeks!

As you can see from the video, the wounds from a Japanese hornet attack are brutal. Once they decide to attack, it gets worse if you try to escape:

“Here’s a chilling scene that Chen Changlin, an Ankang farmer, witnessed one evening a few days ago. As he harvested rice on evening, hornets swarmed a woman and child working nearby. When they reached Chen, they stung him for three minutes straight. Chen made it; the other two died. “The more you run, the more they want to chase you,” said another victim, whose kidneys were ravaged by the venom. When he was admitted to the hospital, his urine was the color of soy sauce.”

The Japanese hornet stinger has the power to dissolve human tissue and chew their prey into a fine paste. Their sting is said to feel like a hot nail going through you.

The honeybees have found a way to fight back. Due to their massive, 2 inch long, 3 inch wingspan size, the Japanese hornet overheats easily and can die if their temperature rises above 115 degrees whereas the honeybees can tolerate up to 118 degrees. So the honeybees swarm the hornet, vibrate to raise their temperature, and roast the hornet alive:

Hornets only attack humans when they feel that their hive is being threatened, but as temperatures rise around the world, Japanese hornets are breeding more successfully than ever before and more bee massacres and attacks on humans will continue.

BTW, the Japanese hornet has already been spotted in the U.S and have a Facebook page to help you keep track of the Japanese hornet apocalypse.
