(NEW YORK POST) Massive killer hornets are preying upon the innocent people of China, and have claimed at least 19 lives over the last three months.

Hornets are a type of wasp, and can be distinguished from your ordinary, non-murderous bee by a lack of hair, a longer body and a really bad attitude. Importantly, hornets don’t lose their stingers when they attack, so they can sting you as many times as they like.

The hornets on a killing spree in China are Asian giant hornets, which grow to an average of two inches in length. The queens are even bigger, as you can see from this revolting photo if you’re brave or crazy enough to follow the link.
