Killer Hornets▼ 虎頭蜂 Take a look into a growing empire that raises dangerous stinging insects. 來看看這個撫育危險螫人昆蟲的王國。
There is a buzzing killer on the loose, a deadly flying monster with strong venom▼ that can melt human skin. It is the killer Japanese giant hornet, and it is truly a nightmare▼. Unlike bees, which die after stinging you, hornets can sting you over and over again. Imagine that this hornet is the size of your thumb, is always angry, and often travels in groups that attack anything threatening them. If they sting a person enough times, their venom can stop the human heart. In fact, 30 to 40 people in Japan die every year from these killer hornet stings. National Geographic Channel (NGC) presents a new show, Killer Hornets, showing the lifecycle of these fatal killers. In the forests of Japan, the Japanese giant hornets begin building their new hive and searching for food at the start of summer. However, a battle is about to begin because they are not the only hornets in the forest. They must compete with their smaller cousins, the Japanese yellow hornet. Although the yellow hornets are half the size of the giant hornets, they have greater numbers on their side. This month on NGC, find out which group of hornets will survive on Killer Hornets.
