If There Are Two Words,

I do not like to see together,

giant and hornet are pretty close to the top of my list, these giant hornets, (Vespa mandarinia) are just as aggressive as the regular ones we've all seen and their venom is even more potent, in fact, 30 to 40 people die each year in Japan due to stings from these wasps, You may be thinking, "well at least they're in Asia so I'm safe here in my North American or Western European home," but while that might be true for the time being, the insects have been spotted in the US, in Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia, and in Europe in France already and possibly in England and their numbers are likely to go up, not down in these countries, now there is a scary thought, and if you think they are bad for us at five times the size of a honey bee, 30 of the massive killers have been filmed obliterating a colony of 30,000 honey bees in less than three hours, scary indeed.
