The Horned Helm
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb and Joe. McCormick and today. We're doing the horned helm. This is going to be one of our essentially one of our invention themed episodes, but I decided. You know we really need to come back to armor, and the best place to start with armor is really the helmet I think the helmet is one of these wonderful things to consider because on the one hand, there is the more sort of combat, centric and medieval. And even fantasy idea of a Hillman Sifi. Fantastic with the concept, but at a very basic level, I feel like we all have some experience wearing a helmet taking this bit of artificial exoskeleton, slipping it over our own skull, and then enjoying its protection. Do you remember the scene in cone heads? Where it? It is revealed that Dan. Ackroyd Cohen Head Bell Dr Enjoys driving a motorcycle, but he's not a fan of helmet laws. No I. Don't remember this. Does he have a? A weird helmet or he just he can't wear human humans. I would imagine that's the source of his frustration. Because seems seems like bell. Dr Is actually normally pretty much rule follower, but but yeah he doesn't like the helmets, and I think it's probably because he has to get one custom made man. I haven't seen that in forever, but I do remember it had a really fun. Stop Motion Monster towards the end. Yes, yes. Bell Dr Scott to fight one with his Gulf skills. It also has a great line that for some reason is is just used for all occasions around our house, which is your phone is too young. Well, you know I. Don't remember if they wore helmets in that at all the more like space centric cone heads, but I feel like there was some sort of a horned crown that one of the more yeah I think. That's right so one of the we're. We're going to be discussing helmets in general, but but one thing that we're also going to discuss. Here is the idea of the horned helm a helmet with horns on it. It's it's an ancient motif in human civilization, and it ties into some earliest ceremonial practices. Practices and models of imaginative thinking. There's also do something so elegant about the idea thing that may be worn upon the head, and in doing so transforms the individual from a mere human into something, symbolically different a hybrid of human embiid. He's channeling the archaic chaotic gods of the Hunt. Oh Yeah I mean it's very therapy. It's what you see in those ancient cave paintings that so exciting when you start to see the human and the animal forms join together, suggesting fantastical thinking it's clearly there in the horned helmet as well. And and and so when you see these ancient motifs, one example that I was looking at before we came in here today. Was Robert Familiar with the the Sutton? Hoo Helmet? Oh, yes, yes, the sudden new helmet I. Had Papa Picture of it, but I this is one of these that I remember from an early age seeing perhaps on the cover of National Geographic, but it was certainly featured in some sort of Historical Book that I had access to his a kid. Yeah, it's just spectacularly creepy with these hollow is the way the mustaches rendered on the the plate of the face covering. I think it also had leather component when it was actually worn, but it's this decorated Anglo. Saxon helmet from I think it was from the seventh century. was buried in this in this ship burial somewhere in east. Anglia and I've actually seen this up close. And there are replicas of it that are really cool, because they reproduce the artwork that would have been originally visible on the sides, and although it's got all these panels over it, basically, it's a helmet covered with like comic strips, and in all the little panels there are scenes depicted in. In one of them shows these figures will like human shaped figures with horns, apparently wearing some kind of horned helmet. Oh, also evidence of Hornet helmets on a helmet. Yes, wonderful, yes, but it doesn't necessarily show the the characters wearing horned helmets say going into battle it appears to have more kind of a ritual religious significance surrounding the horns. Yes, in in this seems to be basically underlying the earliest versions of of this you know horned helmets go back thousands of years as far back as a twelfth century. See we see this in Cyprus Bronze Age Europe. and. The generally the idea is that yeah, this probably has its origins in in against symbolic tinkling thinking and ritual, and the idea that you're transforming. You're becoming something else. Which of course has a role in combat as well in a row and intimidation sort of role in the basic? behavior of making yourself look larger than you are. But, but then there's also this. Imaginative. Side to it there is this ritual aspect of mill, melting, man, and beast,

That's out there right? Remember that there are. Over a hundred thousand species of lost all them mazing behaviors. If you want to read from the so-called poet of Science Joe. Joel already five about insects and the. Fascination of their lives. Their day to day lives all the way to present day books about insects. Here's a good one. So good friend Brian Dan for. And colleagues just published the solitary bees, biology, evolution and conservation so again if you only think about one species of being this could open your eyes to the behaviors, the value from a human perspective, an environmental perspective, ecological perspective, and just from Behavioral Fascination Perspective. This is a great one to pick up. And a little bit of attention. This is a fun one to. This is called the songs of insects and it comes with the. CDN and basically it's a beautiful. City.

In the case of our APICULTURE, how about we learn from somebody culture that exists in Asia, where there are fewer numbers farther parts farther apart. And so if bees are struggling. Don't maintain that lineage. Look for those that are surviving despite. The onslaught of Varroa Mites and others. So so we can think about your. Your Your fence question in a lot of different weights. Okay. Next question are the murder Hornets the same as the WASPS, affecting France and other countries, and that's no, and that's the Wasp I mentioned before.

Twenty, according to a Ono whose lead researcher of these wasps these nights in Japan? Normally takes about twenty to thirty of these Hornets wipe out a colony of therapy thousand honeybees, so orders of magnitude more. Pervious to the stings of the honeybees, so they just go and decapitate decapitate decapitate killing. So, then they have the honey stores and the PUPAE and larvae that can feed out. I saw the video that you sent me with the with the dramatic music, but it was, it wasn't credible of just having twenty or thirty of these things just killing off thousands, and it happens very quickly in the matter of hours. If you're a beekeeper, who does happen to be out during that particular afternoon, Zap, you can be left with a pile. Of corpses of corpses. So again if she successfully lays that firmly in flies off in gathers her sisters, they have a really great fighting chance of being out a whole colony, and then having this massive food store.

I won't say it's quite that big, but it's pretty large. No no definitely not. No this one is a worker and workers are smaller. The giants are the Queens and let me show you a queen. Let me make it easier to see. That is. That already looks enormous. Yeah, so that's. If. You saw that flying in your garden, you. You'd know something was up. Yeah, that's. That's what the size of a golf ball not quite. Close? So, the the worker is about maybe one and a half to one and three quarter inches. The Queen is two inches long with a three inch wingspan, so it's quite yeah, it's not the largest Wa- species in the world. There's a Pepsi's Tarantula Hawk loss, which is the largest pieces it is the largest hornets species in the world, but it's not the largest wasp, and we have that largest species loss.

"So sammy we brought you back because have been going wild over. What's being called a murderer Hornet? What Hornet are we talking about with that name? So we're talking about vesper manner anyway in typically. It's called the Asian giant Hornet. It's the largest hornet species and it's a species of Hornet. Those actually found in North America last year. So it's been months but when we were sounding the alarm about this months ago We we didn't quite have the right marketing. Going calling. We were calling it. Vespa Mandir India Some people call it the spare OBI Which is just not that. Not the best kind of name to go with. When you really WANNA get headlines You go with murder. Hornet someone attach the name murder. Hornet to it. And it's all the we've heard since so they're in the news because last late last year was the first time that they'd been observed in the. Us is that right. It's the time that they've been observed in the US. Because this is an invasive species they're very commonly found in a number of areas throughout East Asia Southeast Asia and in that range. They can be very very very problematic in their well known insect but when they arrived in. North America We were very surprised of course to see them. And we're still doing a good bit of detective work determine how they even got here share. But we're but there in the news this week basically. You're telling me because somebody called murder Hornet. That's precisely so sammy. What do Asian giant Hornets look like? So the Asian giant Hornet is it kind of seems like someone just stitch together a bunch of nightmares and just rain. Because when you look at it straight on do you see this face with these bulbous Sort of teardrop shaped is that kind of curve around in a way that looks sinister. Their jaws are really. What's very frightening on this triangle shaped head? They've got these very sharp saturated jaws and those are very functional in rather frightening. They can tear through a number of different materials. The back end of them is just as frightening so they had the Stinger that is about a quarter of an inch long and can pierce through be e soothes jeans clothing of of pretty much any sort so there there are bundling nightmares and they're like two inches long that's like that's like a good part of my pinkie finger. It's mean we've been saying that it's a Hornet about the size of a normal person's thumb. Oh my God okay. So so the big reason that people are freaking out about them being here is that you know back where they're from originally they can pretty much destroy honeybee colonies right. Yeah it's IT'S AWFUL. So in their native range when they find honeybee colonies Good maybe twenty. Hornets can destroy a colony of forty thousand bees and just a matter of hours so they are very frightening and very concerning but they're actually not as concerning in their native range as you think because the bees that have kind of grown up around them Have evolutionary abilities that allow them to combat these organisms. Really really well Sammy. I have heard about how he's fight these Hornets. And it's wild. I'm not surprised that you've heard about it. Because it is pretty sensational thing to see. Yes got okay so basically you got Hornets like one of these big murder. Hornets show up. And they kind of like they make the initial moves and then they go back and recruit more murder. Hornets fees are trying to deal with that first horn. Is that right? You have to deal with first. Tornado a whole squadron of Hornets will totally Outgun even the largest colonies Those things are like flying armored tanks and so what they have to do is deal with that first scout and they can fix the problem so when they're hanging out in front of the colony cokes. The Hornet inside. Can I give them? Those come. Hither is sure. Hornet comes inside. There's a whole squadron of bees hanging out just above it that drop onto the Hornets body cover it and bees and they all start eating their flight muscles and they actually create so much heat in this process that they cooked the Hornet in the carbon dioxide. That's produced in the process also can suffocate the Hornets as well and so it's a pretty remarkable ability that they create a convection oven in nature to kill their enemies. I mean murder B.'s. I mean this is a an arms race and if the B.'s do not develop some way of killing these hornets they would definitely be extinct by now. Okay so is that way we concern because we're not sure that like our our North American honeybees have the ability to fight them nicely. We're actually well aware the Arby's do not have this ability. Okay and I mean it's just what our bees need right now. Right in the Pantheon of other issues that they're already dealing with now. They have a murder. Hornet along with Varroa mites sucking out their liver and all these different viruses and nutrition issues. It's alive right because Sammy last time on the show you were talking about how you know. Our honeybees are at risk from the three. Ps which are poor nutrition parasites and pesticides. That's the fourth P. Is Perfect because you know now they have to deal with this to potentially. Yeah and okay. I mean our bees. There's only so much like overtime that you can deal with in terms of stress without reducing productivity in the colony even the colonies survive when they're spending so much of their energy. It's just yeah. It's a rough deal so Sammy. I know that some researchers are saying that this is kind of like getting blown out of proportion you know like including the name Murder Hornets how do you? How do you feel about that? So here's how I feel about that. I am glad that people are paying the level of attention to it that they are paying. Because right now this could be something that is blown out of proportion as oh hope that it is but unfortunately in the the spectrum of different invasive species we don't have a wonderful track record it actually keeping invasive from becoming established oftentimes When they arrive. We have a very difficult time ratting. Them Oftentimes we wait awhile. In determining what it is that that we can do about them because they're new to us so the hope is that we kind of act now to to prevent you know. Us losing a lot of honeybees. What can we? What can we do about this? Sammy if we act now and by act now I mean we need to track these Hornet colonies. So there've been a few of them that have been found but the colonies die at the end of the fall in the Queen's who have already made they burrow underground and they just hang out there all winter long but it's around April and May were they start coming out. They start feeding on sap place to build a colony and those are the ones that we have to track. And if we can kill all the queen's that have actually started nesting underground We can effectively keep them from becoming established in the. Us got it. We got a murder the murder Hornets. Unfortunately we have murder the murder Hornets and I being Dr Bugs M not one to pretty much ever tell people that's what we do unfortunately Just because of how concerning these creatures can be for be health. We need to make sure if we can that. We don't allow them to establish Sammy Ramsey. Dr Bugs I mean. I'm sad about the Hornets but I'm glad to hear you talk. I'll say that is always a pleasure to speak with you. Always I am impressed. So your member at the three. Ps You're listening to brother appreciate.

"hornets" Discussed on The Big Story
"So earlier this week. I mentioned that we'd be covering stories beyond Kovin eighteen on this podcast and I hoped that some more cheerful topics would help. Lighten our collective mood and help us all. Imagine better days which brings me to the murder. Hornets bullets been dubbed. The Murder Hornet murder. Hornets mood a hornets. The so called murder Hornets giant Hornets from Japan that are now in Canada and us. Scientists have dubbed them murder Hornets. Yeah if the first four months of two thousand twenty didn't quite have enough terror for you. No worries this year has got you covered in all seriousness be murder. Hornets are not a product of two thousand. Twenty did not just show up last weekend and we probably shouldn't be calling them murder Hornets that said they're an invasive species they have been seen in Canada they have the potential to disrupt our ecosystem and I mean they do kill people. And if you haven't seen a picture of them yet go look at one. They look like little flying demons. But what are they beyond a scary picture and a headline? What do they do? Exactly that so worrisome. How is British Columbia to control their spread and finally it? Is this another thing that seems terrifying until scientists tell us not to worry and then a few months later? I am hiding in my house again. Or what because right now? I'm about to throw to Claire for our daily cove in nineteen update but if by September. Claire is doing a murder. Hornet update. I'M GONNA be pissed okay. Claire you're up. The federal government has announced a deal reached with the provinces to boost essential workers pay. It's a four billion dollar plan and it's up to the provinces to decide who qualifies but as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says everyone can agree that essential workers are risking their lives by doing their jobs during the pandemic and they deserve a raise. If they're making minimum wage Quebec is delaying the planned reopening of daycares elementary schools and businesses in Montreal by one week. So they're now. Scheduled to reopen may twenty fifth. This mostly comes from pressure from board. Who said teachers don't feel safe going back to classrooms right now and that they weren't prepared to go back so soon. Saskatchewan has confirmed that schools will remain closed for the rest of the academic year. And it's starting to think about what will happen come. September grade. Twelve graduation ceremonies have also been cancelled so school divisions or trying to organize virtual ceremonies and lastly British Columbia says. It'll take up to two years to clear the backlog of surgeries that were put on hold because of Cova nineteen. And that's best case scenario if there no resurgence of the pandemic more than thirty thousand surgeries or put on hold two months ago and the cost to get them done. We'll be at least an additional two hundred and fifty million dollars as of Thursday evening. Sixty four thousand nine hundred and ninety two cases of cove nineteen in Canada with four thousand five hundred and twenty four deaths Jordan drawings. And this is the big story Paul Van. Westerndorp is the provincial apiarists for BC. He's held the position since nineteen ninety. Hello Paul why don't we just start with the very first question is what is a murder? Hornet and is that actually a fair term for it. Now this is the spillover for what we get from. South of the border Media invention the term murder Hornets is is generates unnecessary amount of anxiety and of course flare a fair bit of sensationalism but doesn't really reflect on the correctness of this of this particular Hornet. I mean I'm not trying to dismiss or diminish the the seriousness of this particular invasive species but clearly did not want to supposed to be called and we prefer to call it either. The age in giant Hornet or to be more clear often. Call it by the scientific name which has VESPA Menarini. Ah this mandarin followed by eight men. Dherinia and the reason we often use that term as because the genus VESPA is very well represented in eastern Asia and is comprised of something like sixteen different species of Hornets and this particular one is the largest hornet species of all In fact the largest order to the world and that one has done been founded confirmed in British Columbia since since August last year. So can you describe it? A little bit You mentioned it's the biggest one in the world. It looks terrifying. What is it Like what does it do? Why is it here? Will Wyatt is here. Maybe that is the most difficult question to answer because it is the question would then be honest as to. How did it get here? We do not know how it got here. But we have strong suspicion. That was an inadvertent introduction. through Belco Taylor's at harbours ships that came with containers or with imported vehicles. Things of that kind and the reason we think that is because in an I'm O- older finding so far is very close to either harbors or water or a railroad tracks so We think that these things are hitchhikers. And from shipments that come originating eighty. The Hornets itself is an Apex Hunter. In auto which at this on the very top of the food chain of the insect world there are not many other insects that would ever dare to feast on these Hornets but instead these Hornets are feasting on other insects. That this their mission in life have Some successful show they. They have unusually large heads and that is to accommodate the gigantic men ables the eighteen apparatus the mouthpiece if you will of these Hornets so that they can very effectively eat insects So they're the top Predator of the tech world and one of the reasons that we are somewhat concerned about. This is This particular species is a ground. Nester does not make the traditional paper. Mapuche nests that you sometimes find with our native wasps and Hornets That you select Xi in in vegetation or the league or something like this no Asian giant Hornet builds its nest in the ground and and therefore it is very difficult to detect it. Prefers forced a habitat so it is definitely not necessary in open fields but prefers forest habitat and it seems to be confined primarily in areas where there is quite a bit of moisture in other words addition a maritime climate favoring insect and the worry that we have their twofold this classified as serious. Honeybee Predator and does quite a bit of damage to honeybee colonies later in the season but the more immediate concern that we have is its potential threat to human health and safety In Japan where Occurs Naturally? That insect is responsible for a few dozen human fatalities every year. Not For any offensive Behavior but largely because it is fiercely defending its nest and most of these fatalities occur because people inadvertently Step on or disturb a nest and these huge Hornets are coming out to then Do all kinds of of damage. So that's probably one of the things that unfortunately gave birth to the name murder Hornet. But I'm really curious to what these Hornets stings. Due to the body that makes it So much worse than a regular Hornet's sting. Are they poisonous? Are they just bigger and more dangerous? The latter the the fact is the fact that has been reported that Honeybee Venom is actually more powerful except honeybee is a tiny little character. Compare to this giant insect. The Asian giant Hornet Has a smooth a stinging apparatus rather than an embarked Stinger? Like what the Honeybee has and this? Hornet therefore sting repeatedly and can inject a fairly large volume of the venom. In addition to the venom itself it also contains an peptide and an enzyme that causes tissue necrosis so the wound that it creates with the sting Stinger becomes even larger because part of the tissue then dissolves and creates bleeding and Potential infection so. That does sound really terrifying. My automatic next question is do we have a sense of how many of them are here where they are. What kinds of stuff are you guys doing to find that out that is that is the challenge we face? Oh so Contrary to the US media which is typically very U. S. centered. As you know we have been discovered the This particular species since August and September of last year and In an I mo is the only a nest of the Asian giant Hornet that has ever been detected and destroyed in North America But since that time We have done extensive monitoring of the location there in no other Specimens were were recited. Then last fall infected the separate middle of November Assembly Report came in often single specimen found in a urban setting in white rock. Now why drunk as a small community South Vancouver very close to the Canada? Us border three weeks. Later to our big.
"hornets" Discussed on Short Wave
"Okay here we go. You're listening to shortwave from NPR. Today we've got one of our favorite guests. Well Dr Bugs back unsure ways so quickly to. That's Sammy Ramsey Aka Dr Bugs. He's an entomologist that you might remember from an episode. We aired about honeybees. I appreciate you making time for US little people. Now that you're famous well The title Murder Hornets. It just has a tendency to get everybody interested. A massacre in the honeycomb were dead bees over the front of the high over the bottom dubbed the murder Hornet for its powerful sting in the way decapitates it's prey. They always been trump. The bids there is the capitated. It only takes a couple dozen to show up and start walking off head. Tammy's been pretty busy since these murder. Hornets started getting the spotlight this week. Sammy how many murder Hornet interviews? Have you done goodness this will be the fourth murder? Hornet interview that I've done In the past four days okay. So if you haven't seen the news basically a species of Hornet has shown up in the states and people are pretty worried about them. Sammy has dealt with these critters firsthand. Doing be research in Thailand. These Hornets just kept showing up and carrying off my BS. And then I would come back the next day and they would just be nothing left with a bunch of headless bees inside of my colony very disturbing. That's when Sammy took matters into his own hands. put on my suit and just started whacking. Hornets out of the air. And I think I got a little bit too cocky and one of them showed up and had like a sister with her and so I am knocked her out of the air and the other one just grabbed onto my leg. Va Looking. It's is one of those coming after me. It started chewing into my suit and jest whacking. It's Stinger into the side of of my be suiting thankfully I was wearing a suit those really puffy and really large and so it Stinger while it got through. The suit couldn't quite get to my leg so I hit it with my tool stepped on it but It took a little bit for me to actually be able to take a breath again. I'm glad you made it out. Sammy I wouldn't have died so that people do need as even though they have the name murder Hornet. You're not likely to suffer a fatal effects from a sting from orange so today on the show a murder porn. It's just how worried we actually need to be about this newest honeybee threat.
