You recall, I'm sure, the discovery of the "murder hornet" in the U.S. last year, shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic began. The insects are officially an Asian giant hornet and got the name "murder hornet" because they killed off honeybees, not humans. (Although as the biggest hornet species in the world, the insects grow to about 1.5 inches in length and are certainly bigger than I'd like to encounter, even if I don't risk death.)
But don't worry. Plastics are here to take on those hornets.
A French beekeeper who lost 35 hives of bees — half of his operation — to the hornets has created a trap for them using a specially designed injection molded crate with openings that trap the hornets inside.
"The bottom of the crate is lined with honeycombs for bait, screened off to prevent actual access," Rain Noe writes for Core 77. "Murder hornets travel through the funnel tips in an effort to get at the bait, and unable to find their way back out, die inside the crate."
