I know this is behind a paywall but I think it’s of interest considering the potential risk to Apis mellifera. The New York Times does allow a few free views per month I think. Surprised there aren’t any other threads on this hornet in this section.

Yeah, my looooong thread is in the General Off-Topic section. But what worries me is (1) are there other nests out there and (2) how many queens survived and possibly mated?

I also posted a video iirc about Asian honeybees cooking the wasps to death. I wonder if it's possible to establish Asian honeybees in the US? Or is that a bad idea?


Here's another NYT link to burn through someone's free views. https://www.nytimes....rnet-bees.html
