    In New Jersey we have European giant hornets they are massive and super aggressive, if you kill one and the nest is within about 50-100 yards you will quickly be swarmed by hundreds of these hornets my father ended up in the hospital after killing one of these hornets.

    I removed a bird house on our deck and it was full of hornets so I threw their home and ran to the sliding door. I ran in the house and closed the door and when I did I could hear them hit the glass door behind me. They. Swarmed our deck for hours. Even days later we had them flying around our deck. I know it wasn’t the murder hornets is from your videos.

    Not sure what it's sting is on the scale because I've seen different information on it but I will say it is painful and moreso then what was stated. I'm not saying you need to be afrqid of these because like Coyote stated as long as you're not threatening the nest they're pretty tame honestly. I took a sting as I was grabbing an apple out of a tree one morning at work an didn't seen it on the backside so when I gasped the apple I took a very painful sting to the side of my finger. I work on a farm and take stings from all kinds of insects pretty much every year and this was easily the worst of them. If I was allergic I'd have der needed medical attention for sure. Wasn't the insects fault or mine just how it happens sometimes. We both had eyes on a nice juicy apple and well it got to it first. Just wanted to share that with everybody.

    I live in New Jersey. One of these landed on my half open car window the other day. I literally stopped my car in the middle of traffic and calmly rolled up my window hoping to stop it from climbing all the way into my car. Did I mention I’m paralyzingly afraid of wasps/hornets? Roaches no problem, palmetto bugs child’s play, huge jumping spiders super cool, but bees I can’t do. It took all my strength not to run screaming from my car across the Garden State Parkway. I don’t know how I did it but all of a sudden a zen like calmness washed over me. I slowly got the window rolled all the way up (yes! I did it!) Satan wasp 0 - Me 1! My celebration was premature however. As I began to dance my winning war dance, I saw it - caught in the window was one of its legs. The massive body was outside my car and the leg inside. Praying to all that is good and holy whilst flipping the bird to beeping cars behind me I tapped as lightly as I could on my window down button hoping to open it just enough to let it go but not enough to let the angry satan hornet into my car. I held my breath and counted to three and ...... I did it! It released its leg and it flew away, as did I at about 90mph.

    Nathaniel Peterson 💖 when you did the video on the Tasmanian Devil you picked it up and said "it is so SÖT" SÖT is swedish and you had perfect pronounciation. Nathaniel is an old-fashion swedish name and is now becoming modern again. Peterson is a swedish name. We usually spell it with to t:s but all -son names is of Swedish descent. Not -sen in the ending, that is Norwegian or Danish. No complaints but in American tv and movies we are grateful when you have a Swedish character but you always give them a very old-fashioned first name like Greta or Ingrid and then you give them a surname ending with -sen. No Swede has got that, only -son in the end. The swedish language is very close to english bc of the vikings controlled England for such a long time. Son in swedish is the same in english, son. Your name means son of Peter. I'm just curious, your full name connects you with Swedish and suddenly you say SÖT. If you have a connection to Sweden you'll get a lot of Swedish followers. And SÖT (sweet) is a cute word in swedish. Hope to get an answer however short it is.💖💕

    You are the man folks it’s unlikely to happen at the nest that has been found or being terminated as unlike other invasive species we caught this early so there’s a good chance they’re not going to get a permanent hold on the US I’d like certain Beetles.
