What is it?

I have a BIG bug in the house and I have no idea if it is dangerous, there is a picture here, any clues anyone?

it was a giant asian hornet like this..

thankfully it has left the building! Phew!!!


  1. I would have had a heart attack or atleast wet my pants. I have a HUGE bug phobia. I have an exterminator that comes once a quarter. And if you see any bugs before their next scheduled visit, they come back for free. Let's just say, they have lost money on my contract and will probably refuse to renew next year. They are out here like every 5 or 6 days. I told the guy he just needed to put me on his weekly scheduled. To answer your question, I have no idea what that bug is other than one scary dude!

  2. I think it's an Asian Giant Hornet...I looked it up online. From the photo it looked like a bee or hornet of some sort, so I just googled that.

    Here's the link:

    the photos look similar

    I agree with Hollye, I would have peed my pants too!

  3. by the way, the asian giant hornet is extremely poisonous!

  4. oh geez, i can't believe you had one of those in the house!!! don't you live in tokyo???

    i hate those things with a passion. very aggressive, very dangerous. please stay out!!

    susumebatchi in japanese. ugh. it was probably a queen, looking to start a new nest. creeeeepy!

  5. What on earth did you do?

    I was at a school that was evacuated after a nest of them was found in the roof. Apparently they are not just poisonous but aggressive and territorial to boot. Nice guys, hey?

    I think I would just call DH and tell him we were at the local shops until the bug left!

  6. That's intense! We are under two weeks till our trip - thanks again for all your advice. :)


Thank you!
