(FOX) Asian giant hornets, otherwise known as murder hornets, have been renamed by the Entomological Society of America
Murder hornets have a new name in the state of Washington.
The invasive insect, which is also known as the Asian giant hornet, has been classified as the northern giant hornet by the Entomological Society of America (ESA).
The name has been added to the ESA’s Common Names of Insects and Related Organisms List.
Experts at the Washington State Department of Agriculture announced that they’ll go with the ESA’s naming for the Vespa mandarinia species, on Monday, July 25.
Print and digital resources that mention murder hornets or Asian giant hornets will be updated to say northern giant hornet instead…
