Giant myths about giant hornets

Since the Asian giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia) was first detected in Washington State in December of 2019, it has been hard to miss the eye-catching headlines about this species. With so much news out there, we wanted to break down the facts about this much-buzzed-about species:

• In North America, the Asian giant hornet (AGH) has only been found in a small area in Washington State and British Columbia. No AGH have been found anywhere else on the continent, including the east coast.

• NY's most common lookalike is the European hornet (Vespa crabro). AGH are 1-2 inches in length, and European hornets are 0.5-1.5 inches in length.

AGH do not attack humans unless:
o you handle one,
o you are within 10 feet of a nest, or
o you are approaching a beehive that they are attacking.

Their sting hurts a bit more than other hornets because they are bigger. Human deaths caused by AGH stings are extremely rare - about 12 per year worldwide (compared to about 60 deaths in just the U.S. each year from bee and hornet stings).

AGH do attack and destroy honeybee hives.
Our friends at NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets (AGM) have more info available on their website: https://agriculture.ny.gov/

If you think you have found an Asian giant hornet in NY, please review the identification materials on the AGM website. If you still have suspicions after review, email photos and location information to AGM at [email protected].

I know why killer bees are coming north into the US. No border bee wall.

If anyone has a swarm of bees land in their yard give me a call. My daughter and I will come and get them if we can. We usually charge a minimal fee. This early in the year we may get them for free. Andrew and Katie (607) 732-9827

We looked at bees in the walls of a house on the south side of Elmira Saturday from a call we got last week. With its masonry walls we are not going to do that one. We are getting the bees out of the floor joists of a house in Pine City in a couple of weeks. We will post pictures.

Katie and I installed three nuc. colonies yesterday. We went through all the colonies in the bee yard and found one nuc that made it through the winter with a queen and less than 100 bees. I thought they where dead.

April 10, 2013 7:15 p.m. It is raining and 52.3 degrees. Yesterday we moved empty hives inside the fence and leveled the stand they were on. There are only two more wires to put up. Then we will plug it in and wait for the bees to get here.

April 3, 2013 1:30 p.m. It is above freezing outside 32.7 at lunch time. Katie and I worked on the electric fence around the bee yard. It is about twenty-five feet by sixty feet and has fourteen posts in all. The first of the new bees are going to be here on April 24th. Maybe it will be warmer then.
