reported in Newsmax that "the first nest of 'murder hornets' discovered in the United States...contained about 200 queens that were capable of producing larvae." The hornets were discovered a couple of years ago in Washington State.

"The nest, which was about 14 inches long and eight or nine inches wide, contained six combs with six unhatched eggs, 76 queens, 112 workers, nine drones, 190 total larvae, and 108 pupae that were mostly new virgin queens.
