Giant hornets in Europe

Vespa_mandariniaThe Asian Hornet has hit France and could be heading to Britain.

From the article:

"Swarms of giant hornets renowned for their vicious stings and skill at massacring honeybees have settled in France."

Their bite "has been compared to a hot nail entering the body."

Asian hornets are over an inch long, with a wingspan of three inches. The queens are over two inches in length.

Anyone freaking out yet?
