A couple of summers ago I got stung by a wasp while we were power-washing our deck. It stung me in the hand right between my thumb and index finger and it was some of the worst pain I've ever felt. (And I consider myself to be pretty tough.) So, just like probably everyone else, I wasn't too happy when I saw the news that we had some 'murder hornets' showing up now in the United States. And why exactly are they called 'murder hornets'? Well, according to a report from CNN, it's because their sting is so strong that it can actually kill humans if they get stung multiple times.

Here's a report from CBS News that includes more pictures. (That way you're sure to have bad dreams about the 'murder hornets'.)

Here's another video from ABC News with even more pictures that'll frighten you.

And just as the saying goes..."pictures or it didn't happen"...here's a picture of my hand after I got stung.
