Has there been any reports of the janpanese hornet in the state of missouri? Last year i noticed this huge flying thing i couldn't beleive how huge it was, i'm sure it is a japanese hornet. if any other reports of this in missouri, is anything being done about their presence or is it even a concern?

last week one TV channel in Thailand had in news a report of several casualties - victims bitten by this monster. I don't think there were fatalities - but several people were shown hospitalised.

No However, I have been facinated by the V. Mandarinia in everyway
If anyone knows where I may find one in Lucite case or any zoo that
may have them alive or dead I would like to study one up close for
the science of it.

I think the Japanese Hornet is quite an interesting specimen, not only in it's physical form but it's survival instincts as well. living in New York city does not help my chances of ever seeing one in person, I would like to know where I can purchase one. Alive or in a jar/glass case etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm an artist and would love to catch the detail in this insect. internet pictures do not capture it's full detail. thank you

My bug guy just left and said that's what I have. I have killed about ten over the last two weeks.

I live in north Georgia and have 100's nesting in a tree in the backyard. It was hard to get used to them and not swat or swing as they fly by. They sound like a kid's gas powered helicopter when close and it makes the the neck hairs stand up.

Their nest is about 20 feet up the tree and the entrance is a small hole. After getting over my initial uneasiness, now I run the mower and weed eater around the tree base. They have never attacked or even bumped into me. They are spooky though, being an 1" to 1 1/2" long.

They are odd to seems like one acts as a sentry and guards the entrance then looks over all hornets returning to the nest (hive?)before they can enter. Insects of other species are driven off except butterflies. Butterflies actually land a couple inches from the entrance and arrear to collect nectar or something near the hole, the wasps go about their business and ignore them.

Sometimes the hornets "fight" each other and can often be seen locked together until one (the loser I guess) is thrown to the ground. It always recovers and flies off.

Other than basic college biology and digging up stuff on the internet, I have no additional education covering insects (entomology?)

I think I just captured a Japanese hornet in Central New Jersey. I've lived in Jersey my whole life and I've never seen a bee-like creature this big before. It was carrying a large beetle and when it landed to starte eating this thing, I put a plastic bowl over it and it went nuts. It won't get out since I put a piece of cement block over the rectangular bowl. I need to know who to get in touch with to report this, because this thing looks mean and who knows how dangerous it can be. I've seen what Japanese hornets can do, and it aint pretty.

I was down in the smokey mountains this weekend (Cherokee Natl Forest around Ocoee, TN exactly) and there was a tree that was bleeding sap and there were 5-10 of them there are the base of the tree at any given moment. The ranger came by and told us what they were and asked if we wanted him to spray insecticide on them. They were VERY nonaggressive and other that freaking you out when they got close it was no big deal. I envisioned that the sting from one of those suckers would hurt, but just googled the hornet and found that it could send you to the hospital if it stings you. I guess next year I will have the ranger spray!

You are not finding "Japanese hornets" You are finding "European hornets" Read up on them...

Is it possible that your findings are of the Cicada Killer? This is actually a wasp and looks like the European Hornet, the only hornet in the U.S. Neither species is typically agressive and actually are beneficial to the ecosystem of the yard . Check out some of the pictures on the web and compare the markings. Very interesting! Good luck in your research. smiling smiley
