Hong Kong (CNN) -- Hornets have killed dozens of people in China and injured more than 1,500 with their powerful venomous sting.
The Asian giant hornet, known scientifically as Vespa mandarinia, carries a venom that destroys red blood cells, which can result in kidney failure and death, said Justin O. Schmidt, an entomologist at the Southwest Biological Institute in Tucson, Arizona.
But perhaps a bigger problem than the toxicity of the venom is allergy, Schmidt says. Some people are naturally more allergic to stinging insects than others; a sting can trigger a deadly anaphylactic reaction, which may involve airway closure or cardiac arrest.
Since July, hornet attacks have killed 42 people and injured 1,675 people in three cities in Shaanxi province, according to the local government. Among those attacked, 206 are receiving treatment in hospitals.

There has been a particularly bad case over the past few months in a specific region. Also the pictures are wicked.

I agree.
It cant be that hard for a couple of biochemists to engineer a pathogen that eradicates these little death on wings.

It can be very very difficult to design something that is species-specific. You can tag genes, but an organism is an entirely different story.

Well, our species is overpopulated and overpopulating the world. Just because we're apex predators doesn't mean we should wipe out everything that's a threat. We could do with a bit of culling.

It's not just an issue in China. They've made it to France and have decimated the bee population and therefore the honey industry.

All hail the economy ! Shipping industry is major contributor to economic economibility and its rise to greater economic welfare and more monies !

Just ignore the disease, the spread of unwanted life, and the spread of the unholy monochrome king-sized mosquito's with a vengeance.
