A nest filled with hundreds of ‘murder hornets’ was destroyed ‘just in the nick of time,’ officials say

The mission began before dawn, as scientists covered head to toe in thick white protective gear descended on a quiet backyard in Washington state. Armed with carbon dioxide gas and a powerful vacuum, they approached their target — an insect nest the size of a basketball — and began whacking away with a stick.

“The thing that came to mind was E.T.,” Josie Shelton, who watched the scene unfold steps from her house in Blaine, Wash., recently told “Inside Edition.” “It looked like it was from another world.”

That was the start of an operation carried out by entomologists late last month to capture and extract the country’s only known nest of Asian

Close to 200 Queen Murder Hornets in Wash. Nest Killed ‘In the Nick of Time,’ Scientist Says

WSDA A new Asian giant hornet ready to emerge

Scientists said they destroyed close to 200 queen murder hornets after discovering a large nest in Washington.

Officials with the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) announced in a press release on Tuesday that the nest they found late last month ultimately contained more than 500 Asian giant hornet specimens in various stages of development.

Among those included 76 queens, which had the potential to start a new colony over the next year, and 108 capped cells with pupae, which were believed to be pupae of new virgin queens, according to the press release.

There were also six combs, 776 cells, six unhatched eggs, 190 larvae, 112 workers and nine drones, which are also known as male hornets, the WSDA said.

“We got there just in the nick of time,” Sven-Erik Spichiger, an entomologist helping kill the murder hornets, said in

1989 rape, murder of 16-year-old Kansas City girl solved with new DNA technology

The same technology that helped crack the Golden State Killer case has been used to solve a 30-year-old Kansas City cold case.

Fawn Cox, then 16, was found dead in her Missouri bedroom on July 26, 1989, raped and strangled. Her sister, Felisa, told KCTV that Fawn had gotten home from work at Worlds of Fun after 11 p.m. and went straight to sleep.

When Fawn’s alarm went off this morning, she never woke up. Her mother and sister found her dead in her bed.

“I went over to shake her, ‘Come on! Get up!’ But she had been gone for a while,” Felisa said.

It’s the first murder case solved by the Kansas City Police Department using advanced genetic genealogy techniques like the those used in the Golden State Killer case.

Authorities say the advanced DNA testing revealed the rapist and killer was Cox’s cousin, Donald Cox Jr. He died years ago from an overdose.

First ‘murder hornet’ nest eradicated in U.S. [Video]

The Asian giant hornet is pretty much what it sounds like: an enormous, flying insect with a terrifically painful sting.

But on the plus side, the so-called “murder hornets” — that can grow up to two-and-half inches in length — are also large enough to support the long-antenna of a radio transmitter.

That means that if you can trap them, you can track them.

And that’s just what entomologists with the Washington State Department of Agriculture set out to do with this invasive, dangerous species.

This hornet, seen here enjoying a mound of jelly, is carrying a tracking device.

It and others led the hornet-hunters to a tree in Blaine, Washington, last week.

On Saturday, entomologists clad in space-suit like protective gear wrapped up the cavity, and vacuumed out the nest, the first one eradicated in North America.

Sven Spicheger is the Managing Entomologist with the WSDA.

First ‘Murder Hornets’ Nest Found In US Will Be Destroyed

The “murder hornets” nest found in the Pacific Northwest won’t be around for long. The Washington State Department of Agriculture announced they found the first nest in the U.S. and it will be destroyed shortly.

The WSDA entomologists found an Asian giant hornet nest (nicknamed “murder hornets”) on a property in Blaine, which borders Canada. After trapping and tagging several of the hornets last week, they finally had luck when they were able to attach a radio tracker to one deadly insect and followed it back to the nest.

The Asian giant hornets made a home in a tree, which isn’t always the case. “While Asian giant hornets normally nest in the ground, they are occasionally found nesting in dead trees. Dozens of the hornets were seen entering and exiting the tree while the WSDA team was present,” a press release revealed.

They shared a video of the “murder hornets”
