GIANT ASIAN HORNETS.

Dear-mother-nature

People run into trouble when these hornets form a nest: a basketball-shaped nest that looks like it’s made of gray paper, sometimes under an eave, Schmidt said. If you disturb one of these, or happen to whack a tree that has a nest in it, the hornets may respond as if they’re under attack.

Humans can get themselves in danger by reacting poorly to these large hornets. If you see a nest or a hive, just avoid it, Schmidt says. If one of them buzzes around you, don’t panic.

“Don’t flap or scream or freak out,” he advised. “Just calmly walk away.”

One victim told local media this month that “the more you run, the more they want to chase you.” Some victims described being chased about 200 meters (656 feet) by a swarm.

Yes, no flapping or screaming.  Got it.  While being stabbed and envenomated.

I’ll just be sure to scream louder and run faster then the person next to me.
