Giant Murder Hornets Are Invading Washington (Sorry)

Unless you’ve been purposely avoiding the news entirely for the last few days, you’ve probably already heard the rather tragic news that, for the first time in history, huge angry murderous hornets have been spotted in the U.S. recently — and naturally, they’re hanging out here in Washington.

We’re not even going to pretend that this isn’t horrifying, especially when we’re all getting excited to go back outside after self-quarantining. However, unless you’re a honey bee in Northwest Washington, there’s probably no reason to panic (we hope).

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

According to Washington’s health department, Washingtonians can take preventative measures by keeping food and drink covered or under screens and by disposing of food and drinks properly. While 2020 has had more than its share of plot twists, it appears that murderous hornets don’t have to be another one.
