Warning to all GoYers Killer China Hornets

17 comments


Killer China hornets heading towards Britain at present they have reached France and are capable of killing all our bee hives and if stung by one can kill us too. They say if we get hot weather they will arrive sooner I ve heard on the weather forecast we are in for a heat wave last 2 weeks in May. They are trying to prevent them comming here.

Sorry I ve not been on for a while no key board pr mouse to my pc at present I only have my phone to put this on which is frustrating with the typing not to make errors but I can still look in.

Maybe we won't get the heatwave ... they are often wrong lol ...
It is a worry though. Some pests are spreading. We never used to have Lily beatles here, but this year I have seen two already :((

Thank you Hywel I am hoping when my grandson comes this week I can get another key board and mouse you can read and see in on the net news Daily Mail about the hornets they are mighty ugly lol..

No I did nt have any Lily beetles till I bought a lilly at Homebase which then I had them on all my lillies, then I learned they bury their eggs in the soil for the following year as they were in pots I changed all the soil. I shall see if I get any this year.

Hollyeves if you type into google news 2013 China at war with killer giant hornets there are pictures if yoy scroll down of the stings size of bullet wounds on a Chinese lady it can cause renal failure or death. They can chase you for thousands of yards.

They attacked a man s head chasing him for ages, if one stings you it leaves a scent which then the rest swarm to you. They breed in October .

Thank you Tuesdaybe yes terrible I first thought were they a secret war weapon. !!!!! After finding recently we had germ war fare released on us from the 40s till 79 time of cold war draged round the streets of uk and fired from boats in to the atmospher from south to Scotland also released on the underground London by portondown which government are now concerned of the effects it will have on us all. As these hornets will effect our food if they kill all our honey bees.

Thanks thrupenny, they are in france... saw pic horrible... hope they dont come across the channel... wouldnt like to meet them in my garden...

Thank you Dianebully well they do say Jeys fluid kills every thing but I would rather have a can of hair spray with me which sticks the wings quicker as so it can not fly then try your spray Jeys fluid spray.

Your welcome Hollyeves yes in France at present they can either fly across the channel if we have good weather or come over in plants one lot was in a wood pile off a boat thst went into a country.
They do say if we spot any we are to inform the authorites straight away.
