And Germany protects these insects!

If these are similar to the Japanese version, they are about 2 inches long, perhaps a bit larger.  Here in MO we've got some close to that size, but I've managed to get rid of them, pretty much.  Nasty things, they are.

That sounds like an absolute nightmare, they must be pretty vicious little demons to pursue you for miles.

Hear you on that.

Hope there is something that can be done about it.

Giant hornets can spray their toxic venom and if it gets into your eye it will dissolve the eye tissue and you will go blind.

Asian giant hornet, up to 5 cm in length, is formidable and anaphylaxis is a very unpleasant way to die. All the world seems to have its tormentors in some form.

I believe this one was already dead.

BTW they have now been found in Europe (France), probably as stowaways on ships, and they are spreading. They are causing deaths and environmental damage as well as killing honeybees, one of their principal prey species.
