They're now being referred to as 'murder hornets', though you may have heard of them before as the Japanese Giant Hornet.

Growing to almost 2 inches long, these hornets can take out entire colonies of honey bees, and even kill people. As a matter of fact, it's estimated that upwards of 50 people a year are killed by these ferocious insects.

Enter Coyote Peterson from Brave Wild. About a year ago he launched this video on his YouTube Page, little did he know just how popular it would get. With talks of these nasty killers now invading parts of the United States, people have been flocking to this video to see what a sting from this beast is like.

Remember, what you are about to see is just one of these creatures. Imagine an entire colony attacking you or another animal. They have super-sharp stingers, incredibly strong jaws and gripping claws at the end of their legs.

Let's just say, these puppies live up to their nickname. If you think you can handle it, watch below as Coyote Peterson willingly takes a sting from the Japanese Giant Hornet.
