Deadly ‘murder hornets’ are also a crunchy gourmet snack

Well that's one way to reduce the number of nests...

A festival called Kushihara Hebo Matsuri in the Gifu prefecture, a state in Japan’s central Chūbu region, is devoted to the daring murder hornet dishes. Like any state fair, prizes are awarded to largest nests, which are later auctioned to brave bidders.
Festival-goers know full-well the risks.
A flier from 2018 even warned guests to “please take ample care to avoid being stung,” and added that organizers “bear absolutely no responsibility” should anyone be hurt, or murdered, by a hornet. Local governments are known to issue similar advisories in the spring, telling citizens to beware of “giant sparrow hornets” and avoid perfumes and hair sprays, lest they want to attract the outsized wasp.
Foragers trek through forests to root for giant hornets’ nests using a piece of fish to tempt the bug. When the wasp breaks off a hunk of meat, hunters take off behind it on a race to the nest. They then use smoke to disorient the insects, and chainsaws to extract the colony.
Veteran exterminator Torao Suzuki, 75, told the Times that he also sells excavated nests to be cut open and lacquered, and put on display in homes, schools and other institutions as decor.
Suzuki doesn’t eat them, adding that people have told him the ingredient “makes them potent.”

I got into some really nasty fellows of decent size in Alabama. Much larger that the same insects in Canada. Pain was fast and over quickly. Glad the nest was small.

Who knows how it was coined. It appears effort to eradicate them are underway. Success is far from expected I imagine.

Actually I do know the reason they got the name. They attack and murder the occupants of conventional bee hives. By cutting their heads off.

We have had many issues resulting in the decline of the bee population without this. In north America. They are seriously needed for pollination.

I hope they can be eradicated again.. Yet realistically that is not that likely. They can be really hazardous to people as well it seems. In not that great of numbers.
