they bring along 30 Asian Giant Hornets and they will begin their attack.
It only takes this group of hornets three hours or so to kill a hive of
about 30,000 honeybees and their intent is to find the larvae in the nest.
They then bring back the larvae to their own nest to feed themselves and
the rest of the hive."

"These hornets have been have keen senses and can smell human sweat,
