Washington state again fails to live-track murder hornet

 

October 13, 2020



SEATTLE — Washington state officials said Monday they were again unsuccessful at live-tracking a "murder" hornet while trying to find and destroy a nest of the giant insects.

The Washington State Department of Agriculture said an entomologist used dental floss to tie a tracking device on a female hornet, only to lose signs of her when she went into a forest.

The hornet was captured on Oct. 5 and kept alive with strawberry jam, which she seemed to enjoy, said Sven Spichiger, a department entomologist.
