Virgin Queen Captured in Washington State

virgin queen murder hornet

Two murder hornet queens that escaped last weekend’s vacuuming of their nest in a Washington State tree have been captured. The Washington Department of Agriculture said at least one of the queens is a “virgin,” meaning it was still developing the reproductive system that would allow it to lay eggs and populate a colony.

Entomologists used radio trackers on a hornet to find the Blaine nest and then dispatched a crew in heavy protective equipment to suction as many as they could into plastic tubes. The tree was cut down on Wednesday, and that’s when the queens were found. The scientists plan to remove the section of the tree that contained the nest on Thursday.

The detection of the nest came after a WSDA trapper collected several live Asian giant hornets, also known as murder hornets, on October 21 and 22. The hornets were tracked and followed to a tree in Blaine.

After vacuuming several hornets out of the tree on Saturday, entomologists returned four days later to cut down the nest, revealing two queen hornets, each about two inches long. The queen hornets are either two virgin queens or one virgin queen and an old queen, according to WSDA.

  9. I think what you published made a great deal of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier title? I ain’t suggesting your information is not good, but suppose you added
    something to maybe grab folk’s attention? I mean Virgin Queen Captured in Washington State –
    Killer Hornets is kinda plain. You should look at Yahoo’s
    front page and note how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people
    interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your website a
    little bit more interesting.

    but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  13. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
    words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with
    web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue
    solved soon. Many thanks
