Wasp killed a man in the north in the 54-year-old Villerestro region of Galicia, western Spain. He died after being bitten in the eyebrow by a giant wasp that was near his beehive.
Britain is being invaded by deadly wasps, which can chew and kill human skin with a single bite. The terrifying insects were first detected in Guernsey last month, and an expert highlights how these wasps attack humans.
"We have checked the alarm about this insect for months," says entomologist Dr. Samuel Ramzi. "It is a very large insect, the size of a thumb's thumb, and it has jaws linked to very strong muscles that allow it to chew a lot of different tissues."
He continued, "She can chew through the skin, and she also has really long needles."
And Dr. Ramzi asserts that the deadly poison of these insects can destroy human cells and cause severe pain, and these insects kill up to fifty people a year in Japan.
"We ask residents to alert us of the presence of these insects in the shortest possible time so that we can take swift and effective measures to eliminate the threat posed by Asian wasps," says plant health chief Nicolas Spence.
The deadly insects coming from Asia were spotted for the first time last weekend in Washington. These wasps are two inches long, and it is known that these wasps can wipe out honeybee colonies within hours.
Professor of Entomology at the University of California, Doug Yanega said: "Millions of innocent indigenous insects will be destroyed by the invasion of giant hornets. People in China, Korea and Japan have lived alongside these wasps for hundreds of years, and they have not caused any inconvenience to the human community there. My colleagues in Japan and China Korea is surprised by what happened. "
After seeing some groups of wasps on May 2, agricultural authorities in Washington issued instructions on how to hunt them, confirming that so far only these wasps have been seen inside the state and no other US states have reported an insect.
The concern stems that the wasps will damage the ecosystem by eliminating honeybees, because the bees are responsible for pollinating about 75% of the fruits and vegetables grown in the United States, according to the American biological survey.
Several insect experts spoke to the Associated Press confirming that the so-called "killer wasps" reminded them of the general panic that prevailed in the 1970s when African honeybees dubbed "killer bees" began moving north from South America.
While this most aggressive type of bee reached Texas and the Southwest, the situation at that time fell short of being described as a horror movie. However, it also killed people in rare cases.
And while Asian wasps do not pose a greater risk to human health than threatening honeybees, the damage they can cause to honeybee colonies and other beneficial insects can be seen.
In one of the videos, a giant wasp appears, attacking and bites a mouse for about a minute, and stays attached to it while the mouse tries to get rid of the wasp, then the mouse weakens and eventually succumbs to its power. At this point, the wasp flies and leaves the mouse with difficulty breathing.
