Asian giant hornets’ are an invasive and potentially deadly species, and they’ve just been found in the U.S. for the first time.

Its venomous sting can kill a human if they are stung several times. They’re also strong enough to puncture a beekeeper’s suit. The hornets are more than two inches long and have reportedly been attacking bee hives in Washington state.

Scientists do not yet know how they made it to the U.S.
