Eradication of Asian Giant Hornets from the First AGH Nest Discovered by Officials in the United States — in Blaine, Washington

 SUPPORT UKRAINE/DONATE NOW 

On Oct. 24, the Washington State Department of Agriculture conducted the first Asian giant hornet nest eradication in the United States. The nest was located inside of a tree cavity near Blaine, WA.

Wearing protective gear that looks like a cross between a Star Wars storm trooper and the Stay Puff Marshmellow man from Ghostbusters, WSDA officials eradicated Asian Giant Hornets from the hollow of a tree. Personnel used vacuums with transparent canisters, CO2 dispensers to kill undetected Asian Giant Hornets, and a transparent plastic wrap to contain any possible uncaptured Asian Giant Hornets.

Counting of the Asian giant hornets after eradication revealed that all of the 85 hornets which had been vacuumed out of the tree survived their early morning wake-up call. Learn more about Asian giant hornets at agr.wa.gov/hornets
