Please read them.

Thanks.

There is a species of wasp that can be 2-2.5 inches long. It's the Cicada Killer Wasp (coincidentally), a solitary (they don't live in hives) predator of specifically cicadas. They're harmless to humans but the first time you see one it freaks you out pretty good.

The most aggressive(and dangerous) hornet in the world is the Japanese giant hornet which can be anywhere from 25-45mm long(with queens being up to 55mm). These things kill around 50 people a year in Japan and are generally quite nasty. 30 of them can kill 30000 European honeybees - which have evolved no defense against them - in a couple hours. I'm EXTREMELY glad they live in Japan...

Giant Hornet Info


These Hornets have venom that will dissolve flesh! They have Larvae that excrete an amino acid that is like a super sugar or carb, they give it to the workers in return for the protein they get from them, and they can travel up to 60 miles a day on it. The native wild honey bee of Japan waits until the scout gets in thier nest and they jump it and vibrate themselves to 115 or 118 degrees and cook the thing, because it can only stand up to 112 degrees. Dead scouts tell no tales and leave no trails, The Europeans like he said is a slaughter like you wouldn't believe. These things could almost chew your finger off, if it comes on again on the Discovery channel watch it. I think they call it the hornets from hell.

The ones ugm84 posted Japanese giant hornet are insane. I have seen video of groups of them going into bee hives and wiping out a entire nest just to steal the babies to eat. They are amazing killers.

Here I located a video of a 30 wasp taking on a nest of 30,000 European honeybees and winning

The native Japanese bees have developed a method of cooking the wasp alive though as a defense

Aftr seeing this thread I was kinda baffled, 2 inch hornets are pretty common near I live. Theres some woods nearby and we used to go and shoot hornets nests with airsoft guns, afterwards we were normally running, but the hornets we did kill were huge! At least 2 inches, thought it was normal!

I live in North Carolina,and japanese hornets are pretty common here.
I don't know how they got here,but they are for real.
Biggest one i ever saw was laying next to my shed one day,dead.
Must have died from old age(?)because its body wasn't damaged at all.
MAN,was that thing huge,at least 2 1/2 inches long,and as fat as one of my fingers.
First time i saw one thought it was a humming bird,and you can hear them flying.they make a very unique wing sound.unmistakable.

I bet you those are Cicada Killer Wasps you're seeing and not Japanese Hornets.

yup,after reading about the cicada killer,it seems more than likely that's what we have here.
Mainly as I've never seen them to be overly aggressive and they are solitary.

They are still huge and scare the hell out of me!

First post! Just thought i'd show you some images of a wasp that flew into my house last summer. I thought this was pretty strange for the middle of England
I've left some of the images quite big so you can zoom in and take a look at it.

Image 1 is the wasp on the curtains. Made a deep buzz when flying:

Image 2 is the wasp on one of the speakers in my room:

and the final image, for size comparison is of the wasp (dead and curled up, so smaller than it originally was) lying next to an AA battery. The juice all around is fly killer because it scared me
:

So, is that weird for the UK? I've never seen anything quite that big before, not even Hornets and especially not in the middle of England! I did have a video of it at one point but i may have deleted it, i'll have a look on my HD later. It just buzzed about menacingly, darting for the camera every now and then

That thing looks like a hornet! I saw one of these fly across my garden when I was around 10, I ran inside right away and closed all the windows!! (I am just down the road from you in Milton Keynes)

Wasps, hornets, yellowjackets (shuddering violently) scare the jumpin' beejeezus out of me. A Japanese hornet any closer to me than 50 miles would probably be the death of me. (still shuddering)

I have to give myself a shot whenever I am stung by any flying insect. $!!T, if I were stung by one of these "super hornets" I'd hate to think of what would happen. Normally, when stung, my windpipe tends to swell shut so I have like a 5-10 min. window to get some epinephrine in me, and then I'm still not out of the woods. I have to have constant injections of Benadryal. One day while mulching a Dogwood tree on my property in the spring of '97, I was bending over and and disturbed a ground Yellow Jacket nest. Very bad move on my part. Since it was hot, I was wearing only shorts. The went up my shorts and made a feast of my manhood and I took off to the hosptal.
Got there and the nurse at the desk was giving me a hard time about my insurance and by this time, they were the size of tennis balls, and I reached down and put my boys on the little ledge that seperated the nurses' station and waiting room, and I thought the nurse was going to faint. She came around and escorted me to one of the E.R. rooms right then, and I could not have been more proud. My boys were swollen several times their original size, and of all the luck in the world; my doctor was a gourgeous blond/w hazel eyes and you could not believe the conversation we struck up.
I was hurting like hell and had a few pics. taken for posterity. When I left the next morning, I had three tele. #'s from nurses who wanted to "keep check on me" I was laughing my butt off to the bedroom weeks later. But don't let me fool you. Talk about hurting...man..great balls of fire. Felt like a torch. It took about a week for the guys to get back on-lne but they did their jobs as expected. They were still able to handel the job that they were plunged into.
For those who read this do not attempt to do this at home and if you are allergic to stinging insects ask your doctor for some EpiPens. If you have a serious problems or reactions make sure to carry it with you whenever you go outside or anywhere for that.
I thought I'd give 'yall a laugh

I too am a native North Carolinian and I too have seen these giant f-ing hornets. I was warming up taking some batting practice before a game last year and one was hovering around the cage. I was at least 15 feet away and the thing still looked huge(for an insect of course). But nothing freaks me out more than centipedes, the poisonous kind with stingers. Hornets wont bother you if you dont bother them so I dont worry too much about them.
