Killer, Murder Hornets!
Invasive species are by nature dangerous, but there is only one that causes the opposite to happen instead. For decades now, Asian Hornets have been sprouting up around all kinds of locations near nature parks and areas where plenty of people tend to be, unnerving the surroundings even more than usual. They often land on passersby, biting or stinging them badly. One sting can lead to death, while their jaws are so powerful that even if it doesn’t kill you, you would have a lot of pain while being stung again. Dengue Fever, which Asian Hornets carry, is known to kill 50% of its victims. Also, there are other species carried by these hornets too.
