Asian Giant Hornet
Bees aren’t only dangerous if you’re allergic to them, although that’s usually the main cause of death by a bee or hornet. These insects, plus wasps, are usually grouped. In Japan and China, the Asian Giant Hornet (also commonly known as “Murder Hornets”) can kill a human being, whether you’re allergic or not. They’re the size of a human thumb and typically affect farm workers. Every single year, around 50 people die from hornet attacks, mainly due to an allergic reaction to the sting.
One of the scariest parts about this hornet is that they can sting repetitively. It’s not a one-time sting, which is a horrendous thing to think about. Their stings contain neurotoxins, and their stings are powerful enough to puncture a beekeeper’s suit, which means not even the beekeepers are safe. Even though it’s rare for a swarm of bees to attack a human, it’s not unheard of (Far and Wide).
