First, it was murder hornets, now there are bee-eating hornets.

The invasive hornets were discovered in Georgia and are causing the state’s Department of Agriculture to freak out.

With the bee population declining, the agency is worried that crops will be hit hard sooner rather than later.

The yellow-legged hornet is native to tropical regions of Southeast Asia but was expected to eventually make it to the U.S., but now the question is… how many states have the hornets actually ended up in?
