It's been months since we talked about Murder Hornets and quite honestly I thought I heard the last of the giant bugs. Some people in the Hudson Valley believe that some large insects they have recently come across may be the famous hornet.
Back in May, we first heard about the Asian Murder Hornet and how the species has made its way to the western part of the United States. Not to be confused with the local European Hornet.
Many people throughout the Hudson Valley have posted pictures of thumb sized bee-like insects on social media believing them to be a Murder Hornet.
