They nest in the ground so we will need kerosene. And a lighter.

I remember getting stung by something looking like that when I was cutting the lawn many years ago. It came out of a tunnel in the ground and stung me. Later that night I took carb cleaner, sprayed it in the tunnel this thing came out of and lit it, then covered it with dirt and packed it in. I never saw one again.

This is something to worry about. Here's a scary example of an invasive species. The Emerald Ash Borer from China was first discovered in Michigan in 2002. It has wiped out 30 million ash trees in SE Michigan alone.
In my home town of Ottawa Hills/Toledo, OH, many ash trees are gone.

Aawww c'mon now. Peace on Earth, good will toward men and hornets....until they get established, organized and come to kill you!

Think about it.

One more to the list.
I just don't think our Country can do anything.

1) Giant Hornets
2) Asian Carp (jump out of the water as boats go by)
3) Weeds along the road (Phragmites)

Nah, if you zoom in you can see it's not..but good thing it isn't. There's a guy on YouTube that purposely gets himself stung by one of these things and apparently it's excruciating. Idiot..😂
