The Colony Killer

The Vespa mandarinia or as it is more commonly known, the Asian Giant Hornet, is a monstrously large hornet-the largest in the world in fact. These creatures are able to ravage entire colonies of social insects like bees and other wasps in a matter of hours, and are widely feared wherever they roam due to their toxic sting. This site's purpose is to inform you more about this amazing predator and  explain a bit of what makes it so fearsome.
